Beat me to it.

On Sunday February 10th it is the Funeral and Burial of the ‘Chanquete’, usually starting at Plaza de España at around 14:00 and continuing with a procession along the route Calle Carmen, calle Granada, Plaza de la Ermita, Calle La Cruz, calle Pintada, calle Puerta del Mar and on down to Calahonda beach where the ‘Chanquete’ is ceremonially interred.

The procession is usually accompanied by the Municipal band, revellers in Carnival costume and the ‘widows’ who weep and wail incessantly throughout proceedings.

Next week, there will be an exhibition of costumes and other items relating to Carnival in the Sala Mercado in Plaza de la Ermita, Nerja. Costumes from this year’s Carnival will be added later and the exhibition will remain open for one week after the end of festivities.
