You do not have to go inside anywhere to look for carnival celebration in Tarazona. Locals go out on the streets and squares, around the clock, not only disguised, but also acting according to their costume.
Among all possible variations, the municipality has as well the "mascarutas", traditional attire with a big piece of fabric that covers the body, cardboard boxes on the head, and a cloth mask on the face. Caution, they will drive you up the wall, with amosqueo, a fly swatter made with a stick and ribbons. They will even approach the visitor mockingly, to get amazed you do not recognize them.
