Carnaval Guaymas, the biggest party in Sonora, starts this week. For Carnaval, Guaymas’ beachside malecon will be transformed into a party promenade.

The week of Carnaval, February 4 to 9, will be filled with the burning of the bad humor, crowning of the Carnaval Queen and Rey Feo (Ugly King), concerts, theater, poetry readings, fireworks, parades and all night parties.

Starting on Saturday, February 6, there will be four days of colorful parades featuring decorated floats, brightly masked and elaborately costumed people, marching bands, and pulsating dance music. Plus food and beer stands and elevated stages that will feature various live concerts. Thousands of onlookers, both young and old, will dance, cheer and throw confetti along the parade route, then make their way to the malecon where the party will continue with more live bands, food, drink and carnival rides.

The parade will start at 3:00pm each day (Saturday to Tuesday) from Rodolfo Sanchez Taboada Boulevard and cross the street at 20th Street and then turn on Serdan Avenue and return on 10th Street to end where it started.

There will be fokloric dancers at 3 Presidents Plaza at 8:00pm each evening and live music on the Guaymas Malecon at 10:00pm.

If you haven’t yet had the pleasure of experiencing Carnaval make your way into Guaymas and fiesta Mexican-style.
