Mardi Gras 2009 

Mardi Gras comes early this year and for many the season has merged with Valentine's Day. Festivities have kicked off in Sydney, Australia and run until Parade Night on March 7, 2009. Parades and parties are also up and running in New Orleans, leading to the big one on Fat Tuesday, February 24, 2009.

The 2009 Venice Carnival also began on Saturday and runs through to Tuesday, February 24. In Cologne, Women's Carnival Day is Thursday, 19 February 2009 and Rose Monday is 23 February 2009.

Finally, the Samba schools are mustering for this year's Carnival in Rio, which happens from Saturday, February 20 through Tuesday, February 24, 2009.
