The Carnival of Portugal 2020 is coming, a lot of animation will be spread all over the country, partying everywhere with a lot of joy and excitement.
Despite the big parties, this day is not an official holiday in Portugal. The decision to make this day a holiday is up to the municipalities and private companies.
In Portugal several traditions exist, many masquerade as Carnival costumes featuring professions, movie characters, cartoons or media personalities.
Never forgetting children, they often celebrate in colorful costumes, in parades organized by schools and/or leisure associations.
