Carnival 2010: Aalst and Leuven

February is carnival month and we have celebrated it in many locations worldwide, but never during a snow storm. We attended Aalst carnival accompanied by our friends Kris & Marte and watched the long parade as snowflakes fell on the elaborate costumes and covered the floats in a layer of powdery white snow. Two of Dimi’s colleagues were dressed in drag which added more of a festive feel to our already drunken state. Two weeks later, we attended a smaller carnival in our town Leuven and the sights & sounds were a feast for Kyra’s senses. Unique to Leuven carnival, the participants on the floats throw candy, stuffed animals, toys and other knickknacks to the spectators. To view pictures of the two carnivals, click on the link below:
