The last day of Carnival, Carnival Tuesday, starts at 11:11 AM with breakfast, accompanied by the dulcet tones of a Zate Hermenieke band. This is followed at 12:30 PM by a contest between the various Zate Hermeniekes who will first pass by a number of cafés on their way to Vrijthof square where the final judging will take place. Every Hermenieke band wins a prize!
At 8:30 PM at the Minckelers statue on Markt square, the local folk dance, called the cramignon, will start with a parade along the various sacred sites.
MOOSWIEF UMLIEG HOLE
At midnight, Carnival 2018 is officially ended when the Mooswief is lowered on Vrijthof square during a traditional event called the Mooswief umlieg hole (the lowering of the Mooswief).
