The Carnival of Basel in Switzerland

1/27/2010 07:56:00 PM ·

The Carnival of Basel is not like any festival you've ever seen before. It's a twist of Mardi Gras, lacking of the face paint in some instances, and full of practical jokes around every corner. Lucas DiƩ gives Friends Revolution a crash course in carnival etiquette.

Participants wear full head masks and full costumes. As a visitor (and therefore non-participant) you should neither wear a costume without a mask nor paint your face. Only participants in German carnivals paint their faces and you’ll be immediately classified as a German if you do so in Basel. Again, small children are excused from this rule as they are allowed to do as they like.
