Shrove Tuesday: grand finale with floats in Conegliano, Treviso and Cornuda

Tomorrow, Shrove Tuesday, the last three parades of the event organised by the association chaired by Redo Bezzo: 19 allegorical floats and masked groups in the main town, 16 in the traditional Cima Carnival now in its 30th year. Appointment also in Cornuda where the Pro Loco organises the final day of the 117th Carneval dei Crostoi

Treviso is preparing for the return of the allegorical floats to the city. And Conegliano and Cornuda are also ready to welcome the parade of papier-mâché giants. Tomorrow, the magic of Carnival will experience its most eagerly awaited day: the countdown begins for a Mardi Gras that has been missing for some time and promises contents to be remembered.

TREVISO – The last Carnival parade, in Treviso, was staged on 5 March 2019. Tomorrow, finally, the return to the track with a great Carnival parade involving a total of 19 floats and masked groups. The parade will start from Piazzale Burchiellati at 2.30 pm. The Walls will form the long natural grandstand that will accompany the floats as far as the entrance to Borgo Cavour. From here, the procession will head towards Via Canova, ending in Piazza Duomo after a journey of a couple of kilometres that promises to be a blaze of music and masks, confetti and streamers. The jury of quality, called upon to elect the best float, will have a first station along the walls, where the voice of the speaker will be that of Paolo Mutton. A second stage, in Piazza Duomo, with speaker Mattia Casarin, will instead host the final awards ceremony. The best float will be awarded with a crystal trophy engraved by the master of art Marco Varisco, president of a quality jury that will be composed of directors, sculptors, and artists of various genres. It will be up to them to judge the choreography, the harmony of the group and the float in its workmanship.

Among the protagonists of Carnival 2023 are also the guests of the Israa facilities: in fact, thanks to the willingness of President Mauro Michelon and the operators, more than one hundred elderly people from the rest homes will be able to enjoy the Carnival spectacle from a stage positioned in Piazzale Burchiellati.
