Stay on Monday and Tuesday (and allow yourself rest on Wednesday)!! Feel the emotions of Tuesday eve, when the clock ticks down until midnight, when the Mooswief comes down, and everything, every-thing is over!

On Sunday, Monday and Tuesday a crazy disguise is necessary. On Saturday disguise is also good!

    What happened to the event on Facebook? Frank? Marc? It's no longer there and the link here isn't working either...

    The event is up again Friso! Facebook thought I was spamming when I shared a link to the CS Maastricht-Aachen Carnival event on Facebook's CS Milano Carnival event!

    The Maastricht CS Carnival party events still go on till Wednesday - while our CS Carnival PARTY events end with the (WARNING: VERY DIFFERENT AND KINKY!!!) KitKatClub Party on Sunday night. Then on Rose Monday we just have the "main" Rose Monday Parade in Cologne left and in the evening our final CS Carnival event when we take all our CS'ers to a fantastic local sauna SPA where we begin to regenerate after too much partying the days before...

    SO FOR THOSE WHO WANNA COMBINE COLOGNE & MAASTRICHT CARNIVAL the best idea is to start in Cologne (ideally on Thursday for our Women's Carnival partying all over the city!) and then move over to Maastricht some time on the weekend (OR ON MONDAY - IF YOU'RE DARING ENOUGH TO JOIN US FOR THAT KitKatClub PARTY ;-D)!

    You'll find the links to ALL the subevents (the ones mentioned above - and more!) on the event pages (on Facebook and CouchSurfing) for the main event:

    Hello everyone,
    this event sounds awesome! I looked at it fairly late, would like to come the party at Frank's place tomorrow night and was wondering if anyone still had a spot where I might be able to sleep afterwards. If not, I am aware that I am asking very late and I'd just take the last bus home in that case. See you soon! :D
