Maastricht Carnival takes place this weekend

Maastricht Carnival takes place this weekendMaastricht's annual carnival is about to kick off and those on their Dutch travels would do well to book a hostel and experience the fun.

The three-day party starts on Saturday 22nd February 2009 with music and dancing the dominant theme for the next few days.

Carnival Sunday is the highlight of the extravaganza and will see brass bands marching through the streets of Maastricht in a series of lively and well-attended processions.

As the day continues, travelers can head to the various sites around the city where stages will be set up.

DJs will take over to provide music and entertainment for the gathered crowds.

Fancy dress parties are a major theme of the carnival so travelers can expect some decadent costumes as revelers get into the spirit of things.

Street parties and impromptu crowds are likely to carry on the merriment into the small hours of every night.

Travelers not content to go back to their hostels can continue at one of the many bars that will be open until the morning.
