Carnival is one of the most lively traditional festivals in Spain. Fancy dress parades are held in every town and city and it is one of the annual must-see events for children and adults alike. In some places, the parades incorporate the chirigotas, a group of musicians who prepare humorous choral songs.
To end the carnival, the burial of the sardine is traditionally celebrated. It consists of a carnival parade that parodies a funeral procession and ends with the burning of a symbolic figure, usually representing a sardine.
