Carnival of Bordeaux

Chariots, costumes and parades bring life to the city’s majestic streets, where the Bordelais throw themselves into the fun from the banks of the Garonne. Since 1996, the carnivalesque atmosphere welcomes the arrival of spring to the Aquitaine and an energetic cocktail of dance workshops, a grand parade at 14:00 and musical performances awaits. As well as huge digital displays, carnival goers can now download an app for an augmented reality festival experience.
