Comodin – Fiesta de la Mantilla

Comodin Fiesta de la Mantilla

Comodin is hosting its traditional “Mantillas” night on Tuesday the 5th of February. It marks the beginning of Carnival and is always a busy night of fun, music and costumes. There are prizes for the boy or girl with the best Mantilla.

For those who don’t know, a Mantilla is a woman’s lace or silk scarf covering the shoulders and head, often worn over a comb in the hair and is very traditional in Spain. Previous years have seen some interesting versions of the Mantilla, so don’t miss out on this carnival party.
