Summer carnival

Carnivals have always been events through which ordinary folk have channelled their fun, frustrations and of course, all that is wild within us. This masked Pakoštane madness represents an act of true folk and tourist fun, and unlike those in many other localities throughout Croatia, this masked madness is held in the middle of summer, in the middle of the month of July.

In colourful costumes, shorts or bikinis, a mix of locals and tourists mingle under the hot sun with wine, music and homemade treats, and for years have been the source of the unforgettable excitement of real summer madness.
