Portugal carnival outfits poke fun at public figures

Feb 26, 2020 14:20 IST

Tens of thousands of people took to the streets of Portugal on Tuesday to celebrate a carnival. In a small town 50 kilometres from the capital Lisbon, thousands of revellers in elaborate costumes, scary masks and eye-popping wigs attended street parades where politicians viewed as killjoys are the target of ridicule. Political and social satire was one of the main characteristics of the Carnival of Torres Vedras. Floats that coloured the streets during the parades, poked fun at sports and star athletes, politics, local, national and international politicians.
