Fastelavn with the Danish Women’s Network

A tiger, a panther, several princesses, Alice in Wonderland, Bob the Builder, Pippi Longstocking and a ladybug were among the many participants at the Danish Women’s Network’s celebration of the Danish tradition Fastelavn in Little House on Thong Lo in Bangkok.

The baking hot weather was clearly not an obstacle or spoiled the mood for the children and their parents. While parents chatted during and after the Danish lunch, their children were running around in the garden playing with each other. Some seemed happy just to have found a cool spot to sit. The makeup on some of them smeared out because of sweating so some changed from their hot costumes to something more comfortable.

By 12.30, the King and Queen was awarded their crowns for breaking the barrels and the organizers awarded also two of the participants for most fancy dresses.
