    carnival - reserved view for handicap?

    Are there any special places for people w/ wheelchairs or limited moving ability for the carnival events?

    i would direct your question (which is an awesome one) to the the CARNIVALE committee or to check the local paper DIARIO.
    My guess and I am always wrong.......is that the answer is probably nope.
    We all know too well of the "handicap" parking places.
    If the CARNIVALE is limited mobility friendly i would be surprised.

    I've asked around and was told the same thing. This would be
    a great thing to do for future events - too often these
    people are forgotten!! And sometimes they need it
    the most to get out and enjoy something.

    Do you have info on the contact/website for the carnivale
    committee? Can the tourism board pass this info on?

    Thanks! I see so many families with older parents and just older couples here - I think it would be great for all of them - esp.
    since some of them can't stay the entire time.

    unsure what bully's referring to, but maybe he has an area where his friends and family meet.

    Yes, I am back. There is a special place for wheelchairs users, this is a spot that is sponsored by a local bank and is situated in front of Pincho's. This area is closed with fences to protect the users and they even have security guards and is allocated only for special users. They usually even offer snacks and soft drinks. It can also be identified by the very big flags of the sponsor bank. So there is a place and it is not only for local people but for guests in wheelchair or handicaps.
