The carnival in Aalborg (Denmark) will commence this week on May 19th and run until May 27th. With up to 60,000 carnivalists in the Grand Parade and more than 100,000 spectators watching the magnificent wave of colours and fantasy along the parade route, this is the largest carnival in Northern Europe.
What distinguishes Aalborg Carnival from most other carnivals is that everyone can participate in the Grand Parade on May 28th. The parade moves through the streets of Aalborg and ends in Kildeparken, where the festivities reach their climax and the biggest and most colorful party of the year takes place!
The Battle of Carnival Parade takes place on Friday May 20th, and here groups that have been invited to participate in the parade will perform.
The Children’s Carnival Parade takes place Saturday May 21th at Gabels Torv. From here, about 5,000 dressed up children and their parents march along the parade route to Kildeparken. The Children’s Carnival offers the whole family a joyful and entertaining day. So bring your family and enjoy a day of fun together.
Don’t miss this spectacular event! Be a part of a world full of colours, impressive costumes, music, rhythms and dance from all corners of the world. You are the entertainer – the street is your stage.
