Amazon Carnival Group Parade Festival
Madre De Dios
Date: 18 – 25 Feb
Along the Peruvian Amazon, citizens celebrate the Amazon Carnival Festivity with music and dancing groups to cheer and delight the assistants. The most exciting moment is the crowning of the Carnival’s Queen and King Momo. This latter represented the God of craziness and fun. The river banks are the gathering point to enjoy a good bath and to taste typical regional food. Meanwhile, around the city’s main square you can find typical handcrafts.
