Carnival in Padua 2019
The Municipality of Padua organizes the Carnival in the city, with a big parade in Prato della Valle and in the streets of the historic center.
Prato della Valle and the streets of the center become the scene of an afternoon of fun and joy, for children and their families.
From 3.30 pm Prato della Valle welcomes the great parade of floats: around the Memmia Island 10 carnival floats parade to win “La Gallina Padovana d’Oro“, the coveted prize of the Carnival of Padua.
In the afternoon, many streets in the old town become the scene of all kinds of travelling parades: marching from the Brazilian rhythm, parades of bands in period costume, masked waders and many other artists in costume.
Around 5.30 p.m., all the artists, coming from the streets of the historical centre, come together towards Prato della Valle to end all the festivities together. The most beautiful and characteristic floats wins the competition.
Children and adults are invited to follow the celebrations wearing their own costume.
