Locals dressed up for the ancient Ribeirao Carnival in Santiago de Arriba, Chantada, on Monday to welcome the coming of spring. The carnival goers represented traditional characters known in Galican as 'Volantes', 'Maragatos' and 'Mecos', while some covered themselves in animal skins and others wore bells around their waists.
