The burial of the sardine

The burial of the sardine is the symbolic way to close Carnival on the last Tuesday of the season. There is a street parade where people dress in black and carrying a large sardine through the streets of the city. Everyone gets involved to “mourn” the death of the sardine as it represents the “death” (end!) of Carnival for another year.
