What is it ?
The carnival of Sion is a big celebration which is every year during the first week of February.
A lot a people are going there, most of the time in costume, just to enjoy, watch the parade, party and meet people.
A lots of groups come to Sion, to play music, as you can see in the picture below !!
Then in the evening, people, specially the young adult, are going under a big pavillion to do party all the night.
Here you meet a lot of people you know, you can dance and drink all the night, even if you’re not 21 (Not like in the USA), and you can enjoy the particular music which is being played by the brass band.
Here is an example :
The most important thing there is to enjoy yourself, and the fact that almost everybody is disguised makes the carnival really fun, because sometimes you can’t recognize people.
