House of Denmark in Balboa Park on 666 Pan American Road West in San Diego celebrates the Danish tradition of Fastelavn on Saturday, March 1st, from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. at the House of Denmark Cottage and on the Lawn.
They are looking forward to seeing the children in their costumes – and adults, too, if they feel like it. The children will be invited to beat a barrel with a bat (‘slå katten af tønden’) to make the goodies inside fall out. There will be a chance for everybody to make ‘fastelavns-ris’ (a traditional craft for the season), and to share ‘fastelavnsboller’ (lenten buns).
Please bring your own twigs for the ‘fastelavns-ris’! Participation is free to members of the House of Denmark. Guests (children as well as adults) may join the fun for $5.00 per person. Info: firstname.lastname@example.org
