The Carnival of Gualeguaychú has become the most important in Argentina. Famous for its dancers, costumes, floats and followers, it should be enjoyed at least once in a lifetime. A real must.
A fantastic setting
Feel, vibrate and sing
Brightness, unprecedented light and sound
Contagion of happiness
Joy and renewed energy
Three floats compete to win the first prize and obtain the necessary score to be part of the following Carnival issue. The assessed items include: costumes, synchronicity of choreographies and the floats. All this as well as the themes selected by the directors will make spectators vibrate and dance on the grandstands as they cheer dancers and musicians.
For decades, Carnival in our country has had its own codes and customs and for many participants it has become a philosophy. “Carnaval toda la vida, y una noche junto a vos, si no hay galope se nos para el corazón…” (Carnival for ever, and one night by your side, if there is no gallop, our heart will stop) goes the chorus of the most famous local song to honor Rey Momo (King Momo). Just attending the Carnival of Gualeguaychú once in a lifetime will prove all this is true.
