Today marked the beginning of Carnevale (Carnival). The Carnival is an annual festival, held in Italy and many places around the world. The Carnival ends with Lent, forty days before Easter on Shrove Tuesday (Fat Tuesday or Martedì Grasso), the day before Ash Wednesday. In Shkodra, it is celebrated with festivities along the pedonale in the center of the city. There a dances performed by students representing the local schools, parades and vendors line up the main walkway selling local handmade crafts.
We took a walk around to experience some of the sights and below are a couple of photos and videos, albeit amateur, that I took to post. Enjoy!
