This is a tradition rooted in every corner of Galicia, but especially in Betanzos.
The activities mainly take place during the Carnival Monday and Mardi Gras (local holiday). There are different parades, with chariots and costumes.
On Monday evening you can see endless costumes in all areas of the city.
On Tuesday evening there is an awards ceremony for the best costume, both individual and collective.
On Wednesday afternoon we celebrate the famous Burial of the Sardine, where the most relevant aspects of the city life are satirized and ridiculed, before throwing the coffin into the Puente Viejo of Betanzos.
