Carnivals in Deusto

One more year ”the tomateros of Deusto“ (*) dressed up in costumes to celebrate Carnival. This popular neighborhood of Bilbao was filled with:dragons, pirates, flowers, bees, gangsters … all with a great deal of joy and imagination.
Here is a small taste of what happened.

 

(*) Back in the old days, Deusto was a rural area of Bilbao that produced tomatoes of local renown, and its residents are still nick named “tomateros”
