So on carnival Thursday everyone heads to Lucerne for the beginning of Carnival. There is a huge parade through the streets with floats made by the people and the brass bands all playing. EVERYONE is dressed up, many with huge paper mache heads! We saw all kinds of mythical creatures and animals and beasts and pirates and fairies and knights and centurions and fishermen and everything else you can possibly imagine!
Here are some of the amazing costumes on parade!
Once the parade is done the carnival continues in the streets with dancing and lots of confetti and eating and drinking and being merry! The brass bands all play on different stages around the city and wherever you go there is music.
One of our favourite parts of Wandering is experiencing different cultures but also meeting people from different parts of the world. We often keep in contact with people we have met and meet up with them again when we return. It makes each place we visit all the more rich and meaningful.
