It’s true: Solsona carnival bears no relation to its counterparts in Brazil. The only thing they have in common is that they all take place in February. Let’s think again. Forget all about elaborately decorated floats, samba dancers, feathers, and sequins. You are about to experience one of the most participative, assertive, traditional festivals in all Catalonia. For the local inhabitants, the fun lies in changing roles and taking part in the general debauchery. Be prepared to join in the festival, where for a whole week people shed their sense of embarrassment, feel free to criticise the local authorities, and act out whatever role they choose. That is Solsona - during carnival time, of course!
