ORIHUELA COSTA CARNIVAL takes to the streets of Playa Flamenca next week, with organisers promising an unprecedented event that will bring joy, colour, and music to local residents and visitors alike.
For the first time ever, the area will host a carnival that aims to celebrate the diverse cultures and the spirit of togetherness that characterises this beautiful part of Spain.
Hot on the heels of Torrevieja's carnival parades and scheduled to take place in the heart of Orihuela Costa, this family-friendly event is designed to offer something for everyone, from the youngest members of the family to the young at heart.
The festivities will offer live music performances, creating a lively and inviting atmosphere and ensuring that every attendee finds their rhythm. Additionally, DJs will spin a mix of tracks that will keep the energy high.
The Orihuela Costa Carnival in Playa Flamenca
A wholly family-friendly event, the organisers have gone to great lengths to ensure that children are catered for, and bouncy castles will provide a safe and fun outlet for kids to expend their excess energy.
The highlight of the carnival is undoubtedly the spectacular parade. Featuring vibrant and colourful dancers in elaborate costumes, the parade promises to be a feast for the senses.
Participants and dancing troupes involved in the parade have been rehearsing for months, preparing routines that celebrate the local culture and the diversity of influences that have shaped Orihuela Costa.
This premiere Orihuela Costa Carnival results from a collaborative effort by local businesses, cultural organisations, and the municipality.
A spectacular event supported by local businesses
Organised by the Comisión de Fiestas Orihuela Costa in association with the Town Hall of Orihuela and the Asociación Costa Orihuela Cultural, the event is supported by a large number of businesses such as Olé Comunicacion, The Abbey Tavern in La Florida, and Zenia Boulevard shopping centre.
The 2024 Orihuela Costa Carnival takes place on Saturday, 17th February, with the main parade starting at 17:00 and proceeding from the roundabout at Calle Nicolás de Bussi and Calle Pintor Ribera, in the direction of CEIP Los Dolses school.
With a lineup of activities that cater to every age and interest, the carnival promises to become a landmark event in Orihuela Costa. Find out more about the Orihuela Costa Carnival from the C.F.O.C's Facebook page, or check out the map below to locate the starting point of this event.
