The playful carnival atmosphere attracts multitudes of donut loving masqueraders to the centre.
The Carnival is the time of the year when people are allowed to “put on a different face”. The Carnival lasts from Fat Thursday to Ash Wednesday, and it is a period when winter is being chased away all across Slovenia in order to attract spring. It is no different in Kamnik, where the old city center changes into a lively venue every Shrove Tuesday, where masqueraders of all imaginable colours and shapes chase winter away with their dancing and music. The majority of Tuesday’s events take place in the afternoon hours, when the parade sets off though the city centre. At the same time, the Carnival is one of the rare opportunities when the people from Kamnik can meet the Countess Veronika or a real Kamnik mammoth while walking down the streets.
