The Laetare carnival in Welkenraedt

  • Folklore and Tradition
Sunday 31 March 2019

Discover these popular festivities, part of the great Rhine Carnivals tradition.

Very much looked forward is the induction of the Prince and Princess of the carnival, with two ceremonies: one for children, another for the whole crowd. Then starts the cavalcade with its richly decorated floats and colourful costumes. Head for the Town Hall in the afternoon to see it. The day ends with a cheerful ball, held under a marquee on the  Place des Combattants.
