Limassol carnival

Limassol's Mayor unveiled this year's carnival logo last week and announced that two women will have the lead roles in the Limassol carnival for the first time this year with the plan for two Carnival Queens. 

This year’s carnival – on the weekend of March 9-10 –will break from the long-standing tradition whereby a Carnival King and Queen is appointed to lead the 11-day-long festivities, as the two Queens of fun and happiness will take front stage after they are crowned on Tsiknopempti, or Stinky Thursday, which marks the beginning of the Carnival festivities.

A total of 121 carnival parade floats will take part in this year’s Limassol carnival.

The new logo, which depicts a lion, the symbol of the Limassol municipality, also includes the bright colours and playful patterns representing the lively celebrations of carnival.
