Carnival is often associated with the south of the country, but above the rivers we also know how to party. Especially at the Kwakbollen, the carnival association from Harmelen. Every year they organize a parade and all kinds of fun festivities during the carnival weekend.
Carnival always falls exactly seven weeks before Easter. It is the beginning of the fasting period that runs until Easter, a total of about 46 days. So you can go crazy during Carnival before you have to stick to the strict rules of the fasting period from Ash Wednesday.
