Lund Carnival – 2018. Save the date! 18-20th of May

Soon it’s Lund Carnival time again!

A student carnival (Lundakarnevalen) takes place every fourth year and is arranged by about 5 000 students from Lund called “karnevalister”. The carnival is an old tradition in Lund, dating back to 1849, and each carnival has a different theme.

That is how the Carnival parade looked like about 100 years ago (the photo belongs to University library, public domain)

During Lundakarnevalen 2014 “Futuristic carnival” more than 200 000 persons watched the Carnival parade passing through the Lund city centre.

Here you can watch an official after-movie from the previous Carnival – 2014.

The theme for Carnival – 2018 is Imagination.

And some more photos from the Carnival-2014
