This weekend sees Carnival parades, masked balls and other events right across Majorca. Most are taking place tomorrow (Saturday), with Sunday being when Palma stages its parades (as also do the likes of Alcudia and Santa Margalida). Carnival continues into next week with the traditional "burial of the sardine" on Tuesday evening, i.e. before Ash Wednesday and the start of Lent.
