Each year Mallorca celebrates the onset of Lent with street parties and parades. Most towns will be having their own carnival over the weekend, with the largest parties to be found in Palma.
The island celebrates carnival with street parties, live music, food & drink and colourful fancy dress parades named Sa Rueta – the children's event, and Sa Rua – the adult's parade.
In Palma, the Sa Rueta takes place on Sunday morning from 10:30 to 13:30. Sa Rua is the adult version and main event, held from 17:00 on Sunday. There are prizes for the best costumes and both processions will march down La Rambla, c. de La Riera, c. de la Unió, pl. del Rei Joan Carles I & av. de Jaume III
Most towns and villages hold their own fancy dress parades and boast a festive atmosphere during this time of year.
