Cozumel Carnival 2009
Fantastic seafront parades.
  This week saw a fantastic finale to the 2008 Cozumel Carnival.

On "Fat Tuesday" thousands turned out to dance in the streets and watch the boisterous seafront parades.

Last night, Cozumel's main square, Parque Benito Juárez, was packed for the official closing event to this year's Carnival.

Prizes were presented to outstanding Carnival participants, from groups of children to teachers and animals.

More than a few tears were shed as the traditional effigy of Juan Carnaval was carried off the stage and prepared for lighting.

When the fire caught and Juan Carnaval went up in flames, the people of Cozumel said goodbye to the spirit of Carnival 2008.
Carnival 2009 coming soon!

Locals and visitors alike fondly remember this week of fun, rhythm and madness in 2008 - and already they're looking forward to even more glamor and mayhem in Cozumel Carnival 2009!
