    I always remember it being the first Sunday in March. I hope Riva provides a link as i can't see how they can change it. La Vega, SD este have Carnaval on the 25th. The SD Carnaval always features the best marching troupes from the entire island and a few from other countries. Seems like a big conflict............

    We need the link Riva..............

    We were surprised to see San Cristobal all ready for Carnival already. Street canopies up around the park, street vendors selling masks, etc. 

    Maybe things moved up because Easter is so early this year?  Too many celebrations in too short a time?

    Maybe but how can they make a last minute change? Some of the marching troupes come from other countries. SD Carnaval is always the best from the entire country. So does this mean that Carnavals on the 25th is other cities are being cancelled?

    Riva_31 waiting to hear back from you......................

El alcalde del Ayuntamiento del Distrito Nacional (ADN), David Collado y Dagoberto Tejada, coordinador general de la Unión Carnavalesca del Distrito Nacional (UCADI) anunciaron la celebración del desfile del Carnaval de Santo Domingo 2018 para el próximo 25 de febrero en la avenida George Washington, en el tramo comprendido entre el Obelisco de Santo Domingo, conocido como Obelisco Macho y el Monumento de la Independencia Financiera de la República Dominicana, popularmente llamado Obelisco Hembra, en el que participarán más de 125 comparsas y personajes de más de 30 sectores de la capital.
    WOW, thanks a lot for the link. A BIG surprise to me................

    I guess this wasn't a last minute change. I hope next year there will be some info posted much sooner as to the date especially for people who plan their trip around Carnaval. I know a couple people who planned their vacation for first Sunday in March as it has been that way for at least the last ten years that i can remember.
