Carnival time in Fribourg - February
Carnaval des Bolzes 25 - 28 February 2017
- a time for letting your hair down after the doom and gloom of winter !
FRIBOURG OLD TOWN - CARNAVAL DES BOLZES
The highlight of the Carnival takes place on Sunday afternoon from 14:00 in the Old Town. After the noisy procession of strange floats, colourful bands and raining confetti, the celebrations turn to the trial of Rababou and the lighting of the gigantic fire - the ritual paganistic torching of the Grand Rababou effigy - bearer of winter and all evil. This takes place in the Petit-St-Jean Square.
The Children's procession and bonfire takes place on the following Tuesday from 14:00.
All dates and times to be confirmed.
