• Folklore and Tradition

This carnival started in 1983 with 5 tractors dragging floats, richly decorated with flowers and garlands... On these stood children in special fancy dress, their face painted in colourful patterns. The procession was followed by two giant puppets and a funky 2 chevaux. Its much bigger and even more cheerful today. Come and join this family-friendly day!

The program
