Carnival fever is nearly upon us and in two weeks’ times masquerade costumes and all sorts of funky, colourful decorations will take over the streets as the island will beat to the drums of Limassol’s annual parade. To put everyone in the mood and get the carnival hype going in Nicosia too, a themed party is coming up on Saturday with a taste of what the carnival has to offer.

Nostalgia Parties, known for their lively events, have teamed up with the Aglantzia Municipality to be part of the 2019 Aglantzia Carnival. The Nostalgia Parties gang have already organised seven carnival parties around the island so these guys know how to get a crowd going and deliver a fun event. This year they are joining forces with another entertainment institution for the first time.

On Saturday, 70s and 80s disco sounds will blast out of the carnival pop-up tent in Aglantzia, giving a new spin on Nostalgia’s previous carnival events. The other three nights of Aglantzia Carnival 2019 will be centered around World music, so for Saturday night the organisers wanted to do something special.

At this party, DJ Chris Americanos will hit the decks with an opening set by Dj Claudio.

Yet what Claudio and Nicholas say is special about their parties are the people they gather. Old and young and from any background. “Our favourite thing about the Nostalgia parties is actually the people we manage to attract! On Saturday March 2 you can expect a fun and friendly crowd, some great music, a new venue, and some great drink and food options,” they promise.

Drinks, cocktails and food stalls will be there too including vegetarian options for those wanting to go meat-less.

Nostalgia Parties celebrates five years of events this year having organised over 40 parties so far and are planning a special party in April. Until then, put on your best masquerade costume and welcome the carnival season a la Nostalgia.
