"The (in)famous places for Carnaval" Boxtel Local Custom Tip by Pavlik_NL
Boxtel Local Customs: 1 reviews and 1 photos
Boxtel, like any town and village in Northern Brabant, celebrates it's Carnaval intensively. For four (some even make it five) days long the people sing, dance, dress up, go crazy, drink, eat and party on. There are parades in which large sculptures (paper-mashee) mog local celebraties or political descisions. Local dialect is suddenly the only language spoken (and written), though many visitors from "over the rivers" join the festivities. After the "Vastenavond" (eve of fasting, Tuesday-evening) follows the Ashes-Wednesday
Sadly I have not been able to attend carnaval in Boxtel, though as teenager I celebrated it many times in Limburg.
