Carnevale - Opera, Milano

Carnevale in Italy is a hugely happy 4-day celebration (...4 days in Milan, at least... longer in other cities... Venice, for example has one main weekend but goes for WEEKS!). Some friends from school went down to Venice to really celebrate Carnevale... I enjoyed seeing the celebrations on a smaller scale right in Opera. (There were more celebrations in the city of Milan too.)

The main celebration was on the weekend and included a large parade, which the entire town seemed to partake in! The kids, and many adults, were all dressed up in costumes... very, very adorable.

I really know that I live in a small town when the parade's floats are pulled by tractors!
