February 19, 2020 – After the Riva lit up last Sunday for the salsa-inspired Carnival opening with Cubismo, Split Carnival continues with a week of colorful events for everyone to enjoy.

Namely, Dalmacija Danas reports that the festive program continues throughout the week with free dance workshops, while the festivities heat up this weekend to Fat Tuesday.

After last year’s success at Dardin, the organizers are once again using the famous Split park as a hub for the ‘Magical Forest’ inspired Children’s Carnival, intended for elementary and secondary school kids. The Kindergarten Carnival will take place on Monday.

This Saturday, February 22, at 11 am, the program begins by handing over the city keys, and continues with the interactive play ‘Magical Disco’.

Members of the Dance Center and children’s groups will take the stage.

Children and parents are invited to come on time because, throughout the program, the jury will evaluate the best costumes. At the end of the program, between 1 to 2 pm, prizes will be awarded. The prize fund is 2000kn – 1000 kuna goes to the winner, and at 200 kuna each will split the other five places.

The Kindergarten Carnival will be held traditionally in the large hall of ŠC Gripe on Monday, February 24, from 10-11:30 am.

All kindergartens near Gripe are invited to come by foot, while paid buses are organized for those further away.

The Kindergarten Carnival will feature mascots, an interactive children’s play, and tempting prizes. All parents with kindergarten-aged children who do not attend kindergarten are also invited to join the program.

Since the city stopped the Carnival dance party at Peristyle in 2016, Split’s clubs have taken over. You won’t want to miss the best-masked winter party on Saturday, February 22, from 11:30 pm.

Dj Sonic from Paris, Pero FullHouse and Yelle will take the Central stage for the Love Rave.

Fat Tuesday, February 25, will once again enrich Dardin park. The diverse evening begins at 7 pm with the presentation of costumes. From 8 pm, carnival-goers can enjoy a concert featuring Krešo Bengalka.

During the concert, the jury will select the best costumes. The winners will split 2000 kuna – 1000kn for the first prize and 200 kuna each for the other places.

Since the organizers wanted to prepare a program that all attendees could enjoy, after Krešo Bengalka, Mladen Grdovic will take the stage.

After the concert, around 11:50 pm, the Carnival parade procession will begin.
