February is, by far, overtopped by the Carnival, an occasion of Florence to prove its multiculturalism with parades marching from Piazza Ognissanti to Piazza della Signoria. The manifestation involves the participation of various ethnic groups vying with each other in costumes, dances and singing. The most artful team is to be rewarded for its ambition of representing ethnic appertaining, but the most spectacular highlight of the event refers to a colored dragon which accompanies the procession on the entire circuit.
