Carnival of Cordoba (Spain)

Carnival is held just before Lent, in the second fortnight of February. Groups of singers called chirigotas and groups dressed up in similar costumes called comparsas parade round the streets of Cordoba and a competition is held in the Grand Theatre in which the groups sing their best comic songs. After the competition, there is a parade through the streets which the public, too, take part in.
