Carnevale, as always, was a blast. The costumes, the food, the floats...nothing else quite like it. This year we went to Sciacca. It is supposed to be one of the biggest carnevale celebrations in Sicily. Our friends who were with us were a bit disappointed, they expected more, but we still had fun. This carnevale, however, was different than the one we experienced two years ago in Acireale. Acireale's carnevale celebration seemed a bit more family friendly. Not that Sciacca's necessarily wasn't; there were kids everywhere, but I saw a lot more teenagers who were drunk, and many who needed to get a room if you know what I mean. It wasn't quite the good-clean-fun that I expected based on my previous carnevale experience.
Lots of political commentary on the floats
This picture gives a bit of perspective on how BIG the floats were!
