The "Fifth Season“: Bonn celebrates Carnival
Those among you who have lived in Bonn for more than a year, know: the Rhineland has not only the usual four, but at least five seasons! And for many people the fifth season, Carnival, is the best one!
This extra season begins on the eleventh of November at eleven hours and eleven minutes with Carnival balls and parties and a lot of other festivities. The climax will be reached between Women’s Carnival ("Weiberfastnacht" - Thursday preceding Shrove Monday/Rose Monday) and Ash Wednesday, when all of the Rhineland tumbles into a state of complete craziness.
