Carnival week in Provincetown is the one event that packs the town to capacity with gay and lesbian travelers, and families who flock into town from other vacation spots on Cape Cod. Estimates have it that up to 80,000 people line Commercial St for the annual parade, and if you’ve seen the width of the street, that’s a lot of people! Many of the gay and lesbian guesthouses and other businesses in Provincetown enter floats in the parade which runs the full length of Commercial Street, and lasts several hours.

The Provincetown Business Guild lists all the events, but to whet the appetite, here are a few pictures from previous carnivals.
