Luxembourg's carnival season kicked off over the weekend with a parade in Diekirch, ahead of Carnival Monday (24 February 2020).

The 41st edition of the Diekirch Carnival "Cavalcade", founded in 1870, took place on Sunday afternoon. This festive event once again saw more than 60 colourful floats and groups parade through the streets of this north-eastern town.

The cavalcade also featured musical entertainment followed by the traditional Carnival ball.

With this opening event, Carnival season is thus officially underway in Luxembourg.
