|NICOSIA， Feb. 26 (Xinhua) -- The Grand Parade brought an end to the Cyprus Limassol's carnival in high spirits on Sunday， with thousands of people lining streets to watch satirical floats and groups of people passing by and later dancing the night away.
Mayor of Limassol， Nicos Nicolaides， told Xinhua before the parade that Limassol carnival is one of the biggest carnivals in Europe， with more than 20，000 participants expected to take part in it.
He said it is the day of joy and a break from everyday worries， and everybody can have fun.

The themes of the carnival floats and teams focused on a satirical disposition on politicians and bankers being at the center of attention for the last four years after an economic crisis that brought harsh austerity for many people， but also depicted everyday scenes of life or cinema themes and heroes.
The parade was followed by open air dancing and singing in many spots of the city.
Limassol has been branded as the city of enjoyment and entertainment. Beyond the carnival event， it also hosts an annual wine festival which is attended by thousands of tourists in August or September.

The Town Hall has a special carnival committee working round the year to organize the event.
The carnival precedes the Lent， a 50-day fasting period -- though few people fast nowadays -- which leads to the Christian holiday of Easter.
