Carnival Parade in Arlon Belgium






On Sunday we drove about 30mn outside of Luxembourg city to Arlon Belgium for their Carnival Parade. There are many carnival celebrations throughout the month of February. The weather was beautiful and the girls had a good time and behaved throughout the whole 3 hour event!! The atmosphere was more crazy than our typical parades back home. People watching the parade and participants in the parade throw confetti at one one another and shoot silly string. The floats use machines to spray confetti all over the crowds as well. There was confetti everywhere...we are still cleaning up confetti we keep finding in our apartment. It was in Lauren's diaper, Mark's jeans and stuck in all of our hair! In addition, they throw candy out to the kids as well.


There was lots of music, floats, marching bands, and other acts to entertain everyone. There were live geese as you can see from one of the pictures posted that we still don't know how they kept them moving and prevented them from flying away. Ericka and Lauren were amazed by it all!
