HUERCAL OVERA Council has hailed Las Naranjas (The Oranges) as the overall carnival winners for 2015 with their bright and flamboyant costumes.
Other winners included Bingo Eclipse (second place), Los Dragones de Hielo del Perez (third place), Las Mil y Una Noches and La Tribu Estelar. The effort put into the costumes this year was apparent with all participants and everyone seeming to enjoy the festivities.
The decision was made by a jury of five people, independent of Huercal Overa, who came together to judge the costumes for originality, elaboration and staging.
Councillor for Culture, Antonio Lazaro, thanked everyone for their participation and highlighted the great atmosphere. He added: “This year has surpassed others in both originality and participation.”
After the parade, Huercal Overa residents and visitors headed to the town square where the party and live music continued to the early hours of the morning.
