At last it’s Carnival

The Mojinos Escozios start the Carnival of Miguelturra 2018.

Luxury barkers for the Carnival of Miguelturra, the components of the well-known musical group Los Mojinos Escozios, have been in charge of starting the most famous festivals of the town.

The Peña Los Segadores with its charanga, as is customary in our carnival, was responsible for the organization of the event and from eight in the afternoon, local, provincial and regional authorities, along with members of the Association of Peñas, Rey of the Carnival, Peñas de la localidad and Máscaras Mayores, gathered at the doors of the Town Hall in the Plaza de España, to receive Los Mojinos Escocios. Minutes later, from the balcony of Miguelturra the Chupinazo was launched to start the Carnival.

After the reception, the delegation went to the CERE and visited the Carnival Museum ‘MOMO’. At 9:30 p.m. the long-awaited proclamation began, with a Carnival Palace overflowing. First of all, the Mayor of the town, Victoria Sobrino, took the floor, thanking the members of the group for their presence and inviting everyone to join in the joy and enjoyment of the party. She was also in charge of delivering the prize endowed with 1,000 euros as the winner of the Poster Contest of Carnival 2018 to Estela Fernanda Agüero.

Miguel Angel Rodríguez ‘El Sevilla’, has been grateful that they can be criers for the best Carnival in the World, the Carnival of Miguelturra, starting the proclamation with the phrase “fills me with pride and satisfaction” of our King Emeritus, which has also been parodied by our street mask at the beginning of the carnival.

Phrases like ‘We have to thank the members and the members who have put on the concert after the proclamation, because otherwise the members would have regretted as much as the members of them being the preachers’, ‘We thank Mayor Victoria who has given orders to the municipal ones that they did not register their pockets before entering’, ‘Tonight we’re going to disguise ourselves as rockers and we’re going to do a Rok and Roll concert, but really’, ‘These are the best carnivals in the world, because are your carnivals’ and ‘Do not drink much, many drinks that hold liquids and have a lot of sugar, drink with Moderation, we never knew who this lady is and we would love to meet’ have provoked the laughter and applause of those present, finalizing the proclamation with the cry of ¡Long live Miguelturra, Long live your Carnival, Long live your People, Long live the Mother who she gave birth you all and hopefully next year, Carnival of Tourist Interest National!

Once the proclamation was over, it was the turn of the Charangas Contest in its III Edition. The prizes were the following:

  • 1st Prize. Alhiguí, 600 Euros and Carnival Pottery
  • 2nd Prize. Los Desmadraos, 300 Euros and Carnival Pottery
