Carnival is an "ancestral and important tradition" in the municipality of Lagos, as a cultural and recreational event, with Clube Desportivo de Odiáxere, the only cultural agent in the municipality that continues to keep this celebration alive, increasing its dimension and attracting an increasing number of visitors. At the same time, there are several groups that also contribute to preserve the tradition, organizing the lively Carnival balls.

The entire municipality of Lagos were celebrating. Children from Bensafrim, Luz and the city of Lagos paraded through the historic central streets of Lagos on the 21st to present their costumes and masks. The celebrations in Odiáxere lasted 4 days, between 23 and 26 and actor Pedro Barroso was named as the King of Carnival for 2020.

On the Tuesday 25th February, we saw the parade of cars through the streets of the most friendly village in the Algarve, whose epicentre is Largo do Moinho.
