Royal Green Embassy of the Carnival of Torres Vedras
The European Green Capital 2020 will be hosting the Carnival of Torres Vedras! The theme “Towards a Green Planet” shows that the “most Portuguese Carnival of Portugal” is becoming a greener event.
On the 15th of February, the European Green Capital 2020 will be hosting the Carnival of Torres Vedras, once the “most Portuguese Carnival of Portugal” is becoming a greener event.
The Royal Green Embassy of the Carnival of Torres Vedras arrives at Rossio Station at 7 pm and will participate in a reception at Lisbon City Council.
Afterwards the Embassy, leaded by the King and the Queen of the Carnival (two men, according to the local tradition), will go to Rossio, where a “green parade” will take place at 9:30 pm.
Allegorical floats are one of the symbols of the Carnival in this town (located 30 minutes from Lisbon). That’s the reason why the Carnival of Torres Vedras produced an allegorical float specially for this parade: under the theme of “Towards a Green Planet”, the car is made of recycled materials and pieces that were produced for previous editions.
The goal could not be another than to strengthen the environmental concerns shared by cities and towns.
