We’ve got some amazing entertainers, world-class fireworks, two incredible parades and a whole lot of merriment coming up for Carnavál de Mazatlán—the oldest Carnavál in Mexico! Things may be a bit different from prior years due to the construction on the malecón and throughout the city, but we know that 2018 will be a Carnavál to remember!

What's your story?
thank you for fending posts, I miss Mazatlan !
Glad you enjoy them! The city is starting to get excited!
Apparently carnival is being moved 400 meters down the malecon to infront of casa del marina. Near the new park. Can you confirm this? Thanks
Yes, Carnavál party zone will begin at the deer statue in Olas Altas and go north along Paseo Claussen to Zaragoza street this year.
And the fireworks?? I have heard 2 stories. Playa Norte or olas altas?
I do not think they’ll be in Olas Altas, but I have not had final confirmation from Cultura. My guess is they are waiting to see how construction progresses.
