The Parade

The Karneval Parade

The karneval parade is the biggest and absolute oldest tradition in Lundakarnevalen, a several km long parade filled with celebration, joy and humor! The parade will leave north of Lundagård at 1 PM during Saturday and Sunday, 19-20 May. With its 20 carriages plus intermediate crew it will take a little more than two hours for it to make its turn counterclockwise through Lund!

The karneval parade has a new course for the first time. Because of the work on the new tram route we will turn south at Allhelgonakyrkan this year, take Bredgatan and s:t Petri Kyrkogata down to Clemenstorget, instead of walking along s:t Laurentiigatan.

See you there!
