Welcome to the Expats Portugal forum!

Since 2005, this forum has had over 6,000 people sign up and take part in our community.

It is a place for people who want to move to Portugal and for those already living here to meet and share knowledge through our community.

With the recent revamp of the site, we have chosen to keep the forum on the website rather than create a social media group as we know there are people concerned about privacy and who owns their data. Plus there is a wealth of information from the years gone by that we did not want to lose.

But this forum is nothing without your input. So come on in, take a look around, ask questions and answer a few.

Tomar and Linhaceira Carnival dates

For anybody who is interested, here are the dates for the Tomar and Linhaceira Carnivals.

Tomar: Children´s carnival in the morning, Feb. 21st.
Adult carnival in afternoon of Tues. 25th Feb. This usually starts about 4pm from
the 7 hills garden, down to the big r/bout and along to the Praça. But if you want a
good view best to get there early - and expect them to be late starting!!

Linhaceira is on Sunday 23rd. They usually start about 3pm and (unlike Tomar)
they go round the circuit 3 times so if you miss something you can hang around or
move to a different place to see it all again. I prefer this to Tomar actually.
As parking is really difficult it is best to get there early. We get there about 1.45 pm
and take photos in the huge carpark while the floats are "gathering".

If you don´t like carnivals, I suggest you avoid both places on these dates as roads
are blocked!
