Masqueraders & Dance Troupes
Masqueraders parading in colorful costumes are the highlights of Carnival. Feathers, plumes, bright colored silks and satin with jeweled and hand beaded designs adorn beautiful dancers as they stroll from near the Charles River, to Central Square, to Technology Square in the foreground of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).


The parade route spans 1.3 miles, starts at 12:30pm sharp on Blackstone Street between Western Avenue and River Street near the Charles River.  The parade runs up River Street, passes through Central Square along Massachusetts Avenue, continues up Main Street and ends in Kendall Square near MIT, Cambridge.
