Carnival in the East

La Romana is also celebrating its carnival in February. The Festival de La Romana is organized by the president of the Casa de la Cultura in La Romana, Ricardo Bello. The event is scheduled for the week of 21 to 28 February. The carnival’s identity is represented by the “Buey Cojuelo” characters.

And then on 20 March, Punta Cana Carnival 2010 takes off at Punta Cana Village.

More than a thousand “diablos conjuelos” from all over the country will parade along November 1st Avenue in their traditional costumes for the enjoyment of the locals as well as the thousands of tourists visiting the area. At the end of the parade, the party gets going to the rhythm of merengue.
