Carnaval in San Pedro officially kicked off on Saturday, February 22, 2020 with a Carnaval Fiesta Block Party at the Central Park.
Spectators at the Central Park were entertained by dances performed by the San Pedro Dance Academy and Titans Mas Band. There were food booths with lots to eat and drink and bouncy houses for the children to enjoy.
The comparsas (street dancing groups) are always a highlight of Carnaval in San Pedro and Mrs. Flora’s Dance Group – Las Caribeñas made their way through downtown San Pedro once again with vibrant costumes and cheerful song & dance.
Of course Carnaval is not complete without revelers hitting the streets with paint and raw eggs in hand to joyfully paint each other; it’s the signature practice that makes the yearly event so colorful and fun. The painting and street dancing continue for two more days. Here are some images of the FUN of San Pedro Carnaval Day One:
