Venice Carnival 2023 officially began on February 4th with a light-filled night parade down the Grand Canal.

Over the next two weeks, the floating city turns into one big, spectacular party, with costumed revelers posing in the plazas, street theater performances, and dozens of events.

The festival attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors to Venice every year.

This edition is titled Make Time for the Primal Signs and was inspired by the signs of the zodiac.

Here are some of the best images so far from one of the most lavish carnivals in the world.

Thousands gathered on bridges and jetties to see the parade’s fire shows and exotic costumes, dubbed “Original Dreamers.”
