Fastelavn – Sunday 14 February

Er mit navn, boller vil jeg have, hvis jeg ingen boller får, så laver jeg ballade……!

2015_02_05 FastelavnThis year’s Fastelavn picnic will take place on Sunday 14 February 2016. This traditional Danish celebration has its origins in an old heathen custom. It is a carnival much loved by children who get to dress up in costume and to hit a wooden barrel specially made for the occasion and decorated with black cats. Prize winners will receive the traditional fastelavnris and there will be lolly bags and icy poles for all children.

Come along at 3.00 pm to join the fun of this festival, to be held at Nordic House. Entrance will be $4 per person for members and $8 per person for non-members. Children can wear costumes if they wish. Bring your family and friends, your picnic lunch, drinks, your aerogard, sunscreen and chairs. Tea and coffee facilities at Nordic House will be available for the usual charge.
