Princes Carnival 2009

Sunday, February 22, 2009

In the carnival period not the mayors are head of the towns, but the princes of Carnival are…

Last night the official Carnival (4 days) started. Earlier my husband Karl transported to Limburg again because he and I are chosen as Cat Princes Carnival 2009 of my hometown Heel!
…and SOMECAT sneaked herself in Karl’s duffel bag… (No, not Sassy! Hahahaha)

Streets have been completely cleared for all in costume, for parades, street bands, parties and celebration.
Crazy new carnival songs, that you can hear and sing along are being played everywhere… Music resounds through the streets!

Carnival Maastricht

The carnival season begins each year on 11 November at 11:11 AM. And although the actual carnival this year is from 21 to 24 February 2009, the festival and party season in Maastricht started as early as the beginning of this year…

And specially for the carnival parade today, we went to a carnival shop yesterday to buy us a costume.

Slowly we see the truth come by… hahahahaha.
