See the Show Stopper the Annual Carnival of Uruguay

The country’s show-stopper is the annual Carnaval, which takes place on the Monday and Tuesday immediately preceding Ash Wednesday. Montevideo’s staid reputation takes a battering during this time as a brace of drummers and costumed revelers advance along its streets. La Semana Criolla (Holy Week/Easter) offers traditional activities like asados (barbecues), horse-breaking, cowboy stunt riding and folk music.
