On Friday, February 17, titled as Entrada de la Nueva Corte (Entry of the New Court), the winner king and queen will be crowned, both Children Royalty as well as the King and Queen of the Carnival.
On the weekend of February 18 and 19, the float parade will begin, as well as music concerts. This is all part of the city’s traditions, which is why missing these two days could be considered as sacrilege.
