    Pag's summer carnival is the oldest carnival on the Adriatic, but the real carnival happens in winter. It begins in January with dance evenings – tanci – are held every Saturday. The culmination of the carnival is during the final three days, when it moves outdoors. So if you’re looking to have a good time, get your masks ready and join the carnival procession, dance the traditional ˝kolo˝ dance from Pag to the sounds of a brass band, view the play Robinja where all roles are performed by men and many other as things as alwys get crazy at carnival time.
