Many towns of the Basque Country celebrate carnivals in a special way but the most popular and overcrowded are held in Tolosa.

The big party starts officially on "Big Thursday". At noon the opening speech is given followed by the burst of fireworks. Within the next day ("Weak Friday") programme the Festival is the most remarkable activity: Leidor Theatre stages a performance when the protagonists are the town inhabitants. On Saturday, "Zaldunita bezpera", Tamborradas (parades led by adults and the children) take place across the streets of Tolosa.
