Carnival Sunday Parade
11 February 2018
As every year, the carnival parade on Shrove Sunday, organised by the Dachorganisation Wiesbadener Karneval 1950 e.V., or "Dacho", the umbrella organisation of Wiesbaden's carnival clubs, rounds off the street carnival in Wiesbaden. The parade sets off from Elsässer Platz on 11 February 2018 at 1:11 p.m. Featuring some 220 participating groups, the jaunty cavalcade meanders through Wiesbaden's city centre. A wide range of carnival groups from Wiesbaden and the region, other parts of Germany and even from Switzerland join the parade. Carnival marching bands, Alemannic "Guggenmusik", colour and marching guards, themed carriages, and a number of other gadgets put spectators in the mood for carnival celebrations in the streets of Wiesbaden, the capital of Hesse.
