Today’s Date: Final day of Carnival

Today marks the final day of Aalborg’s Carnival, first held in 1983. Street parties are organised throughout the week in Denmark’s fourth largest city. The event culminates with northern Europe’s biggest carnival parade, ‘The Grand Parade’, which attracts over 100,000 every year. This year’s theme is ‘Once upon a time’ and the participants are encouraged to follow in their choice of costumes.
