[ED: Whist this signifies a lot of interest in carnival and in participating in carnival contests, it doesn't indicate that there will be the usual parades and public events in the streets. We have no information on those nor what, if any, form they may take. That will depend on the evolution of the pandemic. If I was a betting person, I'd say it's unlikely in 2022.]
