This was our 3rd Carnival in P'town. Fell in love with this place the first day we arrived and the love affair continues. We stay at The Provincetown Hotel @ Gabriel's on Bradford St right beneath the... monument where we enjoy the best breakfasts and very friendly staff and mgt. LOVE P'town Carnival Week - the energy, the costumes, the music, the shows..... See More

Stayed in the Higgins room which included
your very own private deck. Sipping coffee
and drinking beer was relaxing. The view is unbeatable. And the service is 5 plus, plus.....
Looking forward on my future return to the place that I fell in love with..

I travelled all the way from Australia as I was told it's a very friendly place and lots of fun.
I wasn't disappointed and will come back again 😎🌈

Chaos. It was so overcrowded. The traffic in and out of Provincetwon was insane. I've never seen anything like it. I don't think I will go again anytime soon. It took 75 mins to go from Provincetown t...o Welfleet. Not worth the trouble. See More

Great carnival! Wonderful participation from local businesses, residents, and guests in town. Thousands of people everywhere and you could only feel safe with all the municipality support! Buses were ...the only way to travel to and from this event and they were wonderful-no long waits to and quick returns home. Already anticipating coming back for next years Mardi Gras by the Sea❤️ See More

Carnival is such a great week. The creativity. The inspiration. The fun! Fell in love with the festivities the very first time we coincidentally vacationed during Carnival. We return every year.

You gotta go to Ptown for this carnival experience. I've been two yrs in a row,last year was better because it wasn't so commercialized as it was this year. But it was still fun
