- Folklore and Tradition
Pat'Carnaval, a folkloric celebration marking the end of winter and the arrival of spring in Bastogne, is one of the most looked forward traditions in the region.
It all started in 1977: the idea was to ask the local children to dress up in original costumes and join a fun cavalcade. The event becoming more successful each year, more activities were added: a fantastic bonfire, musical entertainment, a family supper, shows for children, dancing... Thus was reborn the carnival tradition, lost for a long time in Bastogne.
