Traditional Carnaval Sunday in Veghel

Sunday, 7-March-2011 - Veghel - Carnaval is full of traditions throughout the world. In Kuussegat (as Veghel is called during carnaval) one of these traditions is the Carnavalsmis (carnaval church service) at the Sint Lambertus Church--laced with humor, but reverant and respectful. This years' motto is 't Is un skôn ding! (It's a beautiful thing!) We had perfect sunny weather. In the afternoon, went to see the optocht (carnaval parade). The route was lined thick with people of all ages. Saw these young pink ladies (photo). Also saw our neighbors Tineke and Gert performing with the Stappers. (350 photos)
