Masks are sold in shops everywhere in Venice. In some shops, like the Tragicomica Mask Shop, you can watch the artists create the maskes.
Many masks are bought by tourists, and many more are used for Venice's most famous festival, Carnevale. This year Carnevale took place from Feb. 19 to March 8. It is like a Mardi Gras celebration before the start of Lent.
All over Venice there are costumed plays, parties, balls, etc. It is one big fun celebration! Come join us next year.
