Carnivale, the Mercato at the Venice Piazza

Carnevale, the masked extravaganza of  Venice is a grand attraction in Italy which usually happens during January to February.  This year however, Carnevale di Venezia 2014 will kick off on Valentines Day, February 14, 2014.  

Wait, what am I talking about?  It is my deepest yearning to experience this kind of carnival, and would have loved to chronicle it for you, but I don't have the means yet to make it in reality.  I love everything about Italy, and it would be great to have a piece of it in Manila.  

Thank God, Megaworld Corp.  invented the theme to be one of the main attraction of their biggest and strongest projects in McKinley Hill - the Piazza, Venice and Tuscany.  After channeling my inner love for the colorful and extravagant Italian culture,  I made my way back to The Piazza at Venice, McKinley for the opening of Carnivale, Mercato Centrale's newest night food market last December 12, 2013.
With the people behind the partnership of Mercato Centrale and Megaworld Corp. for the ribbon-cutting ceremony.

It may not be that close to the real Venetian carnival, but it sure is a good way to indulge on some gourmet finds, typical street foods, the usual favorites at every Mercato Centrale's night food and lifestyle markets with a fragment of the fun that is of a "carnevale."

Check out my photos to see what to expect  every Thursdays and Fridays at 6 p.m. in the evening to 3 a.m. the following day.

The Mercato Centrale group, which also runs the Levante food market in Eastwood, has been the birthplace of many fast-growing Manila-based food businesses like Manang’s Chicken, Mochiko, Merry Moo Premium Ice Cream, Spring by Ha-Yuan, Kristina’s Inutak, Chuck’s Grubberie Fish and Chips and many more. 


I would love to hear your thoughts on my post, care for a comment?
