June 21st - 5PM PST / 8PM EST - Lion's Arch

Inspired by various carnival celebrations around the world – most famously Rio de Janeiro, New Orleans, and Venice – we’ve decided to put one on for everyone’s favorite Tyrian port city. Like its real-world counterparts, the Summer Carnaval will take place in the middle of a dense city street. The aim is to capture the feel of a crowded urban environment on a holiday – a holiday in which all are encouraged to indulge in revelry and debauchery, regardless of their social standing.

Attendees are encouraged to stay within the fairly small designated area, as we’d like to emulate the feeling of an overpopulated old city.

In addition to all of the drinking and mingling you’d expect from such a party, the Summer Carnaval will incorporate a unique tradition of its real-world counterpart: comparsas, or blocos, or in this conext, Carnaval crews.

Each crew will take a turn making a procession through the street, during which they’ll make as much of a spectacle as possible, with music, style, showmanship and antics. During these processions, the other attendees will be asked to keep to the perimeter of the designated area, allowing the crews to parade unimpeded through the triangular street.

Ahead of this event, you and your friends may sign up to participate in this sacred contest of indecency.
To register your Carnaval crew, you must meet the following requirements:

  • At least three participants (but no more than eight)
  • A name for your crew
  • A coordinated theme for your costumes and performances (any theme – simple or elaborate – but the more provocative, the better)
  • A designated crew leader (for communicating with the hosts and recruiting additional participants)

If you’d like to join an already registered crew, simply ask the crew leader for permission – and with their permission, we’ll add you to the list.

To register your crew, contact me with a PM on Enjin, or on Discord: sketch#3439

Boo, by the time I got net back and was able to get in game, it was over! (Seriously, Comcast, wtf, 8-hour long outage in most of San Francisco?!)

I heard it was a blast, glad you guys had fun! I'll have to post Lux's Elder Dragon costume SS somewhere since she didn't get to show it of.

Thanks for hosting the event, Teresa!

I got really tired last night and had to log off for a nap. Turned out to be a full night's sleep, so I missed it!

>.> I blame my cat, she woke me up at 4 in the morning yesterday.
