First Brazilian block animated carnival of Freiburg

Carnival in Switzerland, or Fastnacht in German, has several traditions and even different dates. But certainly nothing of samba, rolled up and sequin … until now. This year the Carnival des Bolzes of the city of Friborg incorporated a Brazilian block to the official parade celebrating the 200th anniversary of the founding of the city of Nova Friburgo in the State of Rio de Janeiro by a fearless group of Swiss emigrants.
Carnival des Bozes has been happening since 1968, a year remembered by one of the blocks with a “flower power” interpretation: young grandchildren and granddaughters of hippies dressed up as hippies, throwing foamy cobblestones in the audience to remind them of the fighting spirit of the time. But that was a long, long time ago. And what came next was the Brazilians – or rather, a mixture of Swiss, Portuguese, Brazilians, even Germans.
The Queen of the Battery was legitimate Carioca, and pulled the block to the end with elegance and sensuality without vulgarity. The drums, a mockery of amateur musicians and samba lovers, kept up the gauntlet, while floats transported Miss Switzerland from last year delivering confetti and smiles to the brave audience who faced almost negative temperatures, rain and almost snow in favor of the revelry.
