One week before the biggie in Basel, Allschwil has its own rather smaller scale Fasnacht celebrations. The cortege starts at 2pm on Sunday 22nd February and officially ends at 4pm - but few people actually go home just then!
If you fancy getting into the swing of Fasnacht early - and many Basel Clicques do just that in Allschwil - then go along to a small scale event that is much like the big one but without such big crowds.
There will be the normal mix of Guggemusik and traditional Fyfe and Drum Clicques, plus stuff to eat and drink.
And like all of these events - it’s all free!
