We were honoured to be part of a special moment celebrating the rich cultural heritage of Mestreech Carnival! Our board had the privilege to participate in an insightful lecture exploring the fascinating history of carnival, led by ‘De Tempeleers Mestreech’. It was a fascinating journey through time, uncovering the origins and evolution of this beloved celebration.

The event was a beautiful tapestry of carnival culture, featuring solemn moments such as the oath-taking by the MUSST president who solemnly committed to uphold the values and traditions of carnival. The atmosphere brimmed with excitement as we eagerly awaited the arrival of the Prince of Carnival, while singing the song of the Carnival – ‘In Mestreech’. Moreover, a highlight of the day was the unveiling of the doll of Mooswief, an emblematic moment steeped in symbolism and reverence.

We were deeply moved by the passion and dedication exhibited by all involved, from the organizers to the participants. It was a powerful reminder of the profound impact that Carnival has in uniting communities and fostering a sense of belonging and joy in our region.

We look forward to continuing our journey of celebration and cultural appreciation, embracing the magic of carnival with open hearts and enthusiastic spirits. We wish all an amazing Carnival celebration, filled with joy, fun and memorable moments! 🎭
