Usually a few weeks before Carnival, about 10 giant multi-coloured carnival figurines (called 'Monigotes') go up on the Malecon.  These figurines are based on the theme of the current year's carnival.

In the Golden Zone, during the Friday and Saturday nights, many banda bands just set up on the side of Avenida Camaron Sabalo between the Hotel Costa De Oro and Fiestaland.  People walk up and down the sidewalks drinking beer and listening to the bands every few metres.  The traffic hardly moves, but the vehicles are packed with people partying!  With all the bands playing it is very loud!  This is a fun experience that we recommend you check out if you are in Mazatlán during Carnival.
