[Riječki karneval 2022.] [Rijeka Carnival 2022] Children’s carnival parade

The beginning of everyone’s favorite event in Rijeka is approaching, which, exceptionally this year, is being held in the summer term! The Rijeka Carnival in its unprecedented form will be a festival of fun and good mood as it always is, but this year with premiere programs that will include a large number of city locations and an extended June weekend, it will turn into an unrepeatable summer carnival story. From June 17 to 19, concerts and parties in the open air, songs and socializing under the starry June sky, carnival costumes under which it will not be necessary to line up layers of clothes, will mark the beginning of summer in a unique way, which will be full of content in Rijeka this year for all tastes and ages. Rijeka is becoming an unavoidable summer destination,

As every year, in the extraordinary edition of the Rijeka Carnival, the youngest carnivalists will present a playful prelude to the craziest carnival weekend. The children’s carnival parade will be held on June 4, a day that will be exclusively dedicated to children in the city and to all those who share children’s joy and want to immerse themselves for a moment in a world of imagination ruled by song and laughter and where simply everything is possible.

Characters from fairy tales, fictional creatures, and traditional masks will parade through Rijeka’s Korza in the most cheerful procession that will start at 5 p.m. from the Karolina Rijeka Gate. After proudly presenting their costumes, which they prepared diligently with their parents, aunts, teachers, they will once again perform their choreography in Exportdrvo, where they will continue to socialize with their favorite carnival refreshments.

The youngest, preschool and school-aged children will participate in the Children’s Carnival Parade this time, and traditionally, before they start their route with the masquerade river, they will visit the mayor of Rijeka, who in their honor organizes a formal reception in the City for all children’s carnival groups. While they are preparing for their carnival performance in front of the stage on Korzo, the youngest members of the First Rijeka majorettes will charm the crowd with their skillful steps, and then the Tratinčica and Mala tratinčica choirs will take the stage and will present their vocal skills until the start of the parade.

A special surprise awaits visitors after the end of the procession, when the characters of one of the most famous children’s fairy tales, “Ivica and Marica”, performed by the Rijeka City Puppet Theater, will take the stage on Korzo.
Entrance to the show, which lasts about 40 minutes, is free, and the start of the performance is scheduled for 19:30.

The first Saturday in June is reserved for a masquerade party that the whole family will enjoy! Get ready for an unforgettable time, take a walk with your little ones through the city center, allow them to be whatever they want and take back the best memories from the Rijeka Carnival!
