With the definition of a Carnival quite literally meaning ‘a festival of colours’, it is no wonder they are enjoyed around the world, all year round. Exploring costume, food, art, dance and music simultaneously, being a part of a Carnival is an unforgettable experience and it can really open your eyes to new cultures and ways of living. So, with this in mind, HI has come up with a list of our favourite celebrations from around the globe.
