|This traditional celebration starts every year with the burning of the bad mood. The main square in Veracruz is the site of a spectacular scene where events, ideas, and people are literally set on fire -- images of politicians and the seven deadly sins are just two examples. The party's then free to commence. Check out the six riotous parades plus entertainment such as dance troupes, cheerleaders, and traditional music. Dances such as danzon and batucadas is also popular. It all comes to a head with the burial of Carnival John and the traditional humorous reading of his will.
