Description

There is a beautiful place in the heart of Belgium, where time rewinds and you're taken on a fun, exciting and carnival-induced trip each and every Laetare Sunday (the fourth Sunday of Lent). The Stavelot Carnival has it all: crazy modern parades, shows of lights and sound, folk ceremonies, huge fireworks to mark the beginning of the spring, and a huge closing ball where an award ceremony takes place for the folk bands of the region. The carnival has 500 years worth of history, so the town's had plenty of practice in putting on a good show.
