In addition to the music and children’s activities, Carnevale includes other daily festivities the entire family can enjoy. At 8 p.m. on every evening through Sept. 9, Carnevale features an electric parade complete with courtesans, stilt walkers, bicyclists, jugglers, and other enthusiastic performers. The parade starts at The Palazzo Theater and continues onto the Palazzo casino floor, past the Waterfall Atrium & Gardens into The Venetian casino and ends at the Grand Colonnade onto Doge’s Palace.
