Carnaval Graveyard

Walsoorden, The Netherlands

Visited on 11 2007

Carnaval (carnival) is a festival season which occurs immediately before Lent. Dutch Carnival is most celebrated in Catholic regions, mostly the southern provinces. During Dutch Carnival, many traditions are kept alive. First of all is the parade with dressed-up groups, musicians and elaborately built floats. This is a graveyard for the old floats used the years before. The paper-maché works lose slowly their bright colors and bring a desolate and empty feeling instead of the pleasure they were built for.
