The Samba Beat in Denmark

By Linda Tancs

You needn’t travel to Brazil to experience the infectious rhythm of the samba. This time of year it’s waiting for you in Denmark at the largest carnival in Northern Europe, Aalborg Carnival. It’s a celebration of springtime, with colorful costumes, samba music and dancing in the streets of Aalborg, the country’s fourth-largest city. The festivities kick off with an international parade and a children’s parade, culminating in the Grand Parade on May 23, when everyone is free to march to the route’s end in Kildeparken. The crowd of participants swells to about 60,000, with another 100,000 spectators lining the route.
