For over 100 years, Sitges has been celebrating Carnival. Sitges goes crazy with activity. Although not officially a gay event, it attracts many gay people, both from abroad, Barcelona and many other cities in Spain. All of the gay bars deck themselves out and the staff dress to the 9’s in drag. The two most important moments of Sitges Carnival are the Rua de la Disbauxa, or the Debauchery Parade, on Sunday night and the Rua de l‘Extermini, or Extermination Parade, on Tuesday night.
