Summer Carnival of the Rock

The colours of India will light up the streets of old Monaco for the 9th edition of U Sciaratu, the Summer Carnival of the Rock, this Friday 19th July.

The party will kick off at 6pm with parades of musical groups and street entertainers including The Pelooze Family, Brazilian dancers, Nikkis as well as Bollywood dancers, Chives & Oscar, a balloon sculptor, the Explorers, and a tuk tuk.

Then of course there are the parades of floats, the first of which will leave at 6pm from the Place du Palais towards the Cathedral, circling around the Oceanographic Museum and the Place de la Visitation before returning to Place du Palais by the Rue des Remparts.

Confetti, masks and costumes, puppet shows, a caricaturist and a make-up stand will also be on the scene, before the evening draws to a close at 10pm on the Place de la Mairie with a large family dance and DJ.
