Cabalgata
A cavalcade is a procession or parade on horseback, or a mass trail ride by a company of riders. The focus of a cavalcade is participation rather than display. Often, the participants do not wear costumes or ride in formation. Often, a cavalcade re-enacts an important historical event and follows a long distance trail. A cavalcade may also be a pilgrimage.Ceremonial entry into or departure from a townMany cavalcades involve ceremonial entries into and departures from towns and villages along the way. A small version of such a ceremonial entry is the "grand entry" that is traditional in many rodeos.[dubious – discuss] Long-distance cavalcades may acquire more riders who join from populated places along its route. The term cavalcade comes from the classical Latin word caballus, used to describe a strong work horse

Carnival Of Cádiz
Los Carnavales de Cádiz
Cádiz

The main characteristics of the carnival in Cádiz

are the acerbic criticisms, the droll plays on words, stinging sarcasm, and the irreverence of parody.[2] While some carnivals elsewhere in the world stress the spectacular, the glamorous, or the scandalous in costumes, Cádiz
