Venetian Carnival Annecy , 28 pics

The Venetian Carnival takes place in Annecy every year in March, except that it has not been held for two years, so it was a highly anticipated event that lasts 2 and a half days in the most beautiful places of our town 😊

It was two weeks ago, I took photos for you in different places, and we start here at the entrance to the old town in front of the Saint François de Sales church

Then here we are on one of the bridges that spans the canal, and you will realize it's not just any of our bridges when you'll see the famous building that is at the back...πŸ˜‰

people who participate in this carnival come from all over, not all the costumes are dazzling, and some are not very pretty...but they put a lot of work and attention for it, so it deserves a picture... πŸ˜‰

We are now at the edge of the lake which also makes a wonderful setting for the costumes of the characters...

the couple below don't have full masks on, and I'd much rather see their eyes scrunched up in a smile, it's much happier than most masks frozen in a cold expression...

and we end with these two characters who complacently staged themselves for our pleasure....
