Finally got to see some of the world famous carnaval in 2008. Words fail me and my praise goes out to all those who contribute to this fantastic occasion. I got to see the large parade where all the troupes converge on one day, over 500 Carnavaliers and 90 Musicians and vast amounts of confetti. The carnival starts in late December or January depending on the lunar cycle and every weekend during this period, a different troupe puts on a show for visitors as well as the people of Limoux.

Enfin pu voir certaines du monde célèbre carnaval en 2008. Les mots me manquent et ma louange va à tous ceux qui contribuent à cette occasion fantastique. J'ai pu voir le grand défilé où toutes les troupes convergent sur un jour, plus de 500 Carnavaliers et 90 musiciens et grandes quantités de confettis. Le carnaval commence à la fin décembre ou janvier selon le cycle lunaire et tous les week-ends pendant cette période, une autre troupe offre un spectacle pour les visiteurs ainsi que les gens de Limoux.

Visit the Lumoux web-site to get details of this marvelous occasion.  Visiting Limoux

Yes it is officially the longest carnaval in the world and I am now one of it's greatest fans!
