2014 Ponce Carnival

Can anyone tell me when the Ponce Carnival is this year? I am staying in Boqueron for a month in February and would like to go to the Carnival!

Gracias

Thank you so much! Do you know what time it starts? Our son, daughter in-law and 2 little girls (2 and 6 year olds) will be with us. Do you think we should go the earlier part of the day or the later part of the day? When is the parade?

Thanks a bunch!

Well, I would suggest you do what we did- go on Sunday at about 1-1:30pm and see the parade. It is colorful and noisy and fun, but you avoid a lot of the crazy.

We got there early and parked in the Monagas Park (where the parade starts) and then set up ourselves with chairs/cooler under a tree along the street and enjoyed for about 2 hours until parade ended and then made a quick get away and had no traffic or issues.

Hi, is the parade on Sunday only? Our kids are visiting from February 22 and leaving March 1. They will not be here on Sunday so which day is the best to go to Ponce?

Thanks so much!

Sunday is the big parade, but there are parades at night on the other evenings Thurs and Sat at around 7pm. But they start in Town and go to the main plaza. Haven't heard what Ponce is doing transportation-wise. But if you go early in day and stay, you could probably get parking close to the main plaza, but traffic might to tough getting out.
