Event has ended

This age-old tradition takes place every year on Mardi Gras in Nendaz and constitutes an unforgettable event for the whole family: a fancy dress competition for the children led by a clown, guggenmusik and torchlight procession are the highlights of the festivities. The theme changes every year and thus inspires the decor of the event and the participants' costumes. Dressed up or not, take part in this celebration full of joy and high spirits !
