During the day of Mardi Gras, it is possible to meet the masks of “le vieux et la vieille” (old man and woman), that they announce, with the sound of cowbells, the arrival of the carnival.
Since morning in the Abbé Henry square, the Committee of Courmayeur prepares carefully the “Seuppa”, the typical soup, which by tradition is distributed to lunch with Fontina, sausage and black bread.
The “Beuffon”, the colored army that has the task of announcing the arrival of the carnival with the sound of bells, accompanies the parade of floats, whose themes are inspired by local events of the year.
Then, snack for children with animation and award ceremony.
