I hope everyone had a buon Carnevale yesterday! I only caught the tail end of the events in Amalfi, but I saw the float they had of The Simpsons, which is a very popular show here. Today I have been poking around the web to see what took place around the Amalfi Coast yesterday for Carnevale. The video above shows the big floats they had in Maiori for the parades. The one with the moving Native American was particularly impressive. I drove through Maiori late in the evening and saw a lot of costumed people out enjoying the music and celebrations. It looks like there was a great parade and celebration in Positano. They had 12 floats! Massimo Capodanno over at Positano MY LIFE has posted photos, beautiful as always, of the events in Positano. Angelica in Positano posted fun photos as well on her blog. Positano News also has a nice page of photos of the parade and floats.

I just came across this video about Carnevale in Maiori, and it has some great shots showing just how much work goes into making the floats for the parades.

How was Carnevale celebrated where you live?

    Hi Laura, That was fascinating to see how much time and effort it takes to build a float. And the floats in action! You share such wonderful things. Take Care,Chuck
