Carnivals of the World: Venice Carnival

Carnival Participants in Venice

If there's one thing I'm learning whilst researching this series on Carnivals of the World - the theme chosen for Santa Cruz de Tenerife Carnival in 2021 it's that every carnival location claims that its carnival is the biggest, or the oldest.  [I'd reserve best for Santa Cruz de Tenerife, but it's clear that I'm biased.] Nice thought it was the original, with records dating back to 1294, well, Venice Carnival claims its origins back to the year 1162. Beat that!

What I don't think can be argued is that Venice tops for elegance.

Sadly, Venice Carnival in 2020 had to be cut short due to the developing coronavirus situation, but here is a video of the lavish Venice Carnival 2020 Grand Opening.
