CARNAVAL DE DUNKERQUE
Petit Futé's opinion on CARNAVAL DE DUNKERQUE
The Dunkirk carnival is a legend with its own codes and practices to make sure you have a good time.
Contrary to its image, the Dunkirk carnival is not a happy mess: everything is codified. A victim of its own success, the carnival is not, as some people imagine, an open-air fancy dress party. This success, renewed every year, would find its origin in the 18th century when, on the eve of their departure to Iceland, the fishermen gathered to party, with this furious desire to have fun as if it was the last time. The campaigns in Iceland were indeed often deadly. Definitely a moment to live!
