For many years Metkovic formed carnival procession, with a large number of masked groups, with a curious audience. The carnivals included everyone from locals to their neighbors from surrounding areas and always interesting creations, with a message or without it. The ancient tradition of the Carnival which is much older than for example the Rijeka Carnival or Samobor Carnival, also encourage Metkovic schools whose teachers are trying to be with their pupils in the parade. The same goes for our kindergartens.
Metkovic is one of the founders of the Croatian Association of carnival cities along with Rijeka, Senj, Opatija and Krk, and a member of the Federation of European Carnival Cities FECC.
