Revellers at the Carnival party were immersed in a feast for the eyes and ears and of course had their taste buds tantalized. The carnival took place in Pretoria and was hosted by the Latin American and Caribbean missions resident in South Africa.

"Carnival typically involves a public celebration or parade combining some elements of a circus, mask and public street party. People often dress up in masks during the celebrations, which is an overturning of the normal things of everyday life," said Ms Magdalena Godoy Wilson, Consul of Chile in South Africa

Welcoming guests to the party Ambassador Chiari of Panama said that carnival precedes the beginning of Lent. He said that carnival has strong cultural links with Africa and wanted to showcase and create awareness of these through food, music and dance.

A wide array of food and drink from Chile, Colombia, Cuba, Spain, Guyana, Haiti, Jamaica, Mexico, Panama, Peru, and Venezuela were on offer and party-goers danced the night away to groovy, carnival-style music.
