Carnival in Cornella 2021
This year we have continued working with the intention of rooting the popular tradition of carnival in Cornellà de Llobregat.
We want the villagers to look forward to the arrival, the parade and the trial of the carnival and that little by little it will be established in our town as a party every year more desired, popular and participatory.
Traditionally Carnival has always been a festival of freedom, except for this year with all the rules that have to be respected.
From Artistalia we have changed the carnival. We have not been able to carry out popular acts in the streets, but we have brought it to the houses.
Our videos posted on the city's social networks have allowed the people of Cornellan to be informed of the emissaries' slogans, to see the arrival of His Majesty in the city, and even to follow the trial where he was accused by Old Lent.
But we have not stopped here, thanks to our mobile platforms we have been able to fill the streets of the city with festivity and satire.
The Carnival has always made a satire of what has happened during the year, so the carnival and its retinue have been representing with humour and respect those 3 months that we were confined, where the WC paper of the shops ran out, the flour to make bread and sweets ran out and it was fashionable to exercise at home.
We knew that people could not follow us on the streets, that there were people who were confined or unable to go out because of the situation. We wanted the party to be for everyone and for everyone to enjoy it from home. We decided to broadcast it in streaming with a duration of 3 hours.
To close the party, and for the first time in Cornellà, the Trial of King Carnestoltes! Old Lent accused Carnestoltes of having a party in the time of Covid. The trial was recorded and posted on social networks so that the whole population could be informed. Verdict: GUILTY and banished for a year!
A DIFFERENT BUT FUN CARNIVAL
