Gijón Carnaval ~ Blanco Y Negro Photo Journal

‘Carnaval’ is to Spain as Halloween is to the US and UK. A chance to get dressed up as a monster or your favourite super hero. 

And in Gijón, it’s another excuse to take a stroll along the waterfront and loiter at the main sidrerias (cider bars), for niños to claim the streets as their own.
