On March 1st you are invited to partake in a Carnaval celebration where you are at the center. On this night we will celebrate the things of the world and make a toast to these ancient ways.
Some say this time of celebration stretches back to the ancient Egyptians, then to times of the Romans and Greeks where they celebrated Dionysian festivals such as Saturnalia and Bacchanalia. A winter celebration to summon the spirits of the coming spring, a fertility right of ecstatic dancing, a right of passage, a time of indulgence and orgiastic merriment. The 4 days leading up to lent, a time when many pleasures are forbidden, are celebrated as a time of revelry, culminating on Fat Tuesday aka Mardi Gras.
Today, Carnival is a global festival, celebrated from Rio to New Orleans, Trinidad to Venice, Dominican Republic to Colombia, London to Brooklyn and beyond.
