Cozumel Carnival for 2014 saw an amazing finale, last week, with thousands of excited tourists and locals dancing in the streets and watching the colorful, musical parade on Fat Tuesday.

Spectacular themed floats passed along the waterfront and costumed revellers danced and played live music around the city.

 

After the parades finished, the partygoers continued dancing in the main squares to live music, including a lively latin performance by top Mexican band Sonora Dinamita.

The following night, after the Carnival confetti and beads had been cleaned up, Cozumel's main square was full again for the official closing ceremony.

Prizes were presented to outstanding Carnival participants, from children and teachers and to favorite pets.

At the end of the evening, as the last songs of the Carnival came to an end, the traditional fire was lit to burn the effigy of Juan Carnaval.

With tears in their eyes, islanders and visitors watched the flames and said a sad goodbye to Carnival for another year.

Everyone that took part will have amazing memories of this colorful week in 2014.

And, of course, Carnival enthusiasts are already looking forward to even more music and dancing in Cozumel Carnival 2015!
