It will run from February 6th to 15th and includes the must-see spectacle of the Candelion - Grand Defile, a parade featuring lanterns and masks.

The carnival is divided into four sections, with culinary delights, evening parties and art shows all featuring on the programme.

Salon at Clam-Gallas begins with a look behind the scenes of the carnival, with a glimpse of a dressing room and a photographic studio.

Galactico is the second stage of the event, which comprises of a series of art displays and evening parties for adults.

The festival's food feast is called Cuisine d'Alchemiste and is hosted by several restaurants around the city.
