What is a Carnival?
A carnival is an event that is usually held in celebration of a holiday or observance, such as Mardi Gras or the ending of Ramadan. Carnival can also be the annual festival in “honor” of a saint, often with processions and other public celebrations. The largest carnivals, held in Rio de Janeiro and Mexico City, are among the most famous of all festivals in the world.
In the United States, a small-town parade and tent show was traditionally known as a “carnival” in the 19th century, though now the word is used there for an annual informal street gathering.
Carnival can also be used loosely to refer to any public celebration, such as pride parades, Saint Patrick’s Day parades (in Ireland), and Halloween trick-or-treating. In use since the Middle Ages, the word originally referred to a celebration in honor of a patron saint. The ethnic connection is not certain; it has been suggested that the etymology involves “carne,” Latin for “meat.”

Greens Point Mall Parking Levels & Rates
On the lower level, there is ample parking for most people’s cars. Also, with the exception of Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays – where some spots are filled with large trucks – parking is usually not an issue. For example from Friday to Monday parking is usually not a problem at all. The parking lot (with the exception of the smaller South parking lot by Aéropostale and American Eagle) is almost always filled up. However, there is ample more parking besides the lot.
On the upper level, there is less common parking, not because of lack of room, but because most people either walk or take a bus to the mall. There are three main parking spots on this level: one near JC Penny’s where two double parked cars can fit in, one parking spot in front of the entrance to JCPenney and one near the side entrance to the mall. The smaller lots located behind JC Penney and beside Sears are usually full as well. In the mid section, instead of parking spots are “loading docks” where deliveries are taken.
