Carnival in Sitges is the wildest party in a town known for wild parties. The festivities begin with the Sitges Gay Carnival where gays from the four corners of the world descend on the town, sometimes numbering more than 300,000 partygoers, in a scene that makes the peak months of July and August look boring. Four days later the Sitges Carnival begins with jam packed events including La noche rosa (Pink night), Noche de las Mantillas - where people wear traditional Spanish dress normally worn at weddings & funerals, Noche de las touristas, - the tourist night (great fun) and finally the Noce de las Viudas or the Widows night (which is anything but lonely). Tuesday, the final day of carnival, some of Europe's top drag performers make their way to Sitges to bitch-battle it out with each other to the great amusements of the revellers. Sitges Carnival is often referred to as the Wildest Party on Earth, and if you've been, you know what they mean. If you haven't, what are you waiting for?
