Whether you enjoy dressing up and donning fancy headgear disguises, or the buzz of watching exotic dance performances, there’s something for everyone over the Whitsun weekend as Copenhagen Carnival, complete with its dancing girls in racy outfits, takes over our streets. And that includes the kids!

All those wishing to take part in the  Children’s Parade should gather on Saturday June 7 at 9am on Halmtorvet, from where they will move onto the DGI-city children’s area just around the corner. Parents are encourages to dress their kids up. Princesses, cowboys, cops, firemen, cats and tigers are all welcome at the Carnival. The more extraordinary the better. 

In their special area, the youngsters can learn how to play music and dance, get their faces painted and play games, while the organisers assess how the children can participate in the many shows and parades specifically for the young − and the young at heart. 

The  Children’s Parade will then embark at 11am for Købmagergade and Kultorvet where it will join forces with other groups from near and far, all wearing their colourful costumes, playing the drums and blowing their whistles. 
There are also events planned for Sunday 8 June at the DGI-town and on Halmtorvet.
