The most important event of the Carnival of Torrevieja 2020 is Sunday, February 16, the great parade of Carnival 2020, which as every year will tour the center of Torrevieja with all the troupes, queens and participants for taking the prize for the best costume of the year. This year as a novelty, a dance area with independent sound will be created where the troupes can convince the judges that their costume, exhibition and choreography are deserving of the gold award. The parade will begin at 17:30 and it will leave Maria Asunción Square, crossing the entire Ramón Gallud Street to Clemente Gosálvez Street. This year the awards are given in the Constitución Square but not at the end of the parade like other years, but on Saturday, February 22 at the end of the night parade.
