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.
