It is that time of year again,
time for bright colours (bit heavy on the neon here),
wings, cleavage, high heels, booming music, confetti, pralini
and prinjolata (very sweet Carnival cake) !
Sadly the four day holiday weekend was largely overtaken by terrible weather-
hail, pouring rain, huge dark clouds and lots of wind-
was freeeezing! Apart from some hours on Monday- so out we went!!
Sadly though I think many of the floats were damaged and the grand finale parade was cancelled.
