Venice Carnival 2023 officially kicked off on February 4th with a light-filled night parade down the Grand Canal.
For the next two weeks, the floating city will be one big, spectacular party with costumed revelers posing in the squares, theatrical street performances and dozens of events.
The festival attractions hundreds of thousands of visitors to Venice each year.
This edition is titled “Take your time for the original signs” and has been inspired by the signs of the Zodiac.
Here are some of the best pictures so far from one of the world’s most lavish carnivals.
The event began with a light-bedecked barge carrying actors and performers down the Grand Canal.
Thousands gathered on bridges and jetties to watch the fire displays and exotic costumes of the parade, entitled “Original Dreamers.”
Another water cavalcade took place on February 5th with hundreds of rowers in elaborate costumes on traditional boats.
The protagonist of the parade was a 7-meter-long papier mache rat known as the Pantegana.
Revelers in sumptuous carnival costumes posed for photos in the streets.
Bakeries have begun churning out indulgent carnival pastries like frittelle, round deep-fried donuts filled with raisins or cream.
