The Sitges Carnival is the first festival of every year and coincides with the end of winter. This Carnival is widespread. Sunday is the key day as the “Rua de la Disbauxa” (Debauchery Parade) takes place, a parade with about fifty floats and over 1,500 disguised participants. When it gets dark, the “Rua de la Disbauxa” wanders around the streets and the seafront promenade. The Mardi Gras, there’s another parade named the “Rua de l’Extermini” (Extermination Parade).
