I really wanted to go to Venice to see the costumes at the carnival there but didn’t plan far enough ahead but I did read about a parade here in Paris and thought I would take a look. It didn’t turn out to be very special and once it started, there was no crowd control so people were as close and they could get to the parade participants and all you could see were moving heads. I didn’t stay to see it after a while but got a few photos here and there while waiting. I understand it was pretty good as it went along, just not at the start. Something to remember for next time.
