Program

Friday May 18th

18.00-20.00

Every year Aalborg Carnival invites a selection of international groups to participate in the street parade.

The International Parade is the beginning of a carnival week full of activities. By including the international groups, Aalborg Karneval attempts to showcase the many different carnival traditions from various places around the world. It is a unique opportunity to watch and experience groups that rarely visit Denmark.

Route: JFK Plads – Boulevarden – Nytorv – Gabels torv.

 

The burial of the bull - 20.00-21.00 - Gabels Torv

Aalborg Carnival wishes to send a tribute to the carnival Gods by sacrificing something very precious to us - The Cimbrer Bull

The Bull will be carried through the parade to Gabels Torv, where we will sacrifice it in a fire.
The ashes will be collected by the Carnival King and spread among the carnivalists, so that the spirit and strenght og the Bull will be with us all week.
If the Gods are willing, The Bull will rise from the ashes after the carnival - even more beautiful and mighty than before!

Follow the parade of the Bull to Gabels Torv, say goodbye to the bad spirits of last year when they go up in flames and help us welcome the carnival!
