Cozumel Carnival 2009
Pop Diva, Gloria Trevi.

Mexican pop diva, Gloria Trevi, played at the opening of Cozumel Carnival 2009 on Saturday night.

More than 6,000 people attended the presentation of the2008 Carnival King and Queen, Jalil Martín Gaeta and Andrea Chacón Nuñez, which was followed by Trevi's dance and music spectacular.

The controversial, but much-loved, "Mexican Madonna", brought the house down with a performance of over 2 hours.

The Carnival King and Queen appeared in full technicolor costume at this "pre-carnaval" event.

Carnival has over 130 years of history on the island and is held around this time every year.

This year the weekend of main Carnival events starts on Saturday, February 21st.

After 4 days and nights of music and mayhem it will finish on 'Fat Tuesday', February 24th, with dazzling technicolour processions along Cozumel's downtown seafront.
