Inca Council is putting a brave face on its plans for the coming carnival parades in the town which have been significantly affected by cuts in local authority spending. Citizen Participation Councillor José Pastor explained yesterday that all subsidies which would in previous years have gone to embellishing floats and street theatre groups taking part in both the adult and children's carnival parades have been eliminated. “This means we are saving around 20'000 euros,” Pastor claimed. To counteract the cuts, 3'000 euros is apparently being spent on prizes for the most outstanding contributions to both parades, he said.

Pastor, speaking at a presentation to the winner of the carnival's poster design competition, furthered that despite the cuts, he was highly impressed with the way that local people are throwing themselves into the spirit of the event .He expected as large a turn-out for both parades as there was last year.
