Argelès Carnival 2019
Costumes, floats, confetti and popular tradition, role play and fancy dress, as the Argelès clubs and groups join together for the fun and fantasy of carnaval.
Follow the Carnival King through the streets of the village – and watch him burn, taking with him all the evil spirits.
And this year, why not join in by popping into the tourist office, signing up and going to the procession in your own fancy dress?
The tourist office team will give you multicoloured confetti to sprinkle as you walk. Great fun for the kids…great fun for the adults too!
