German Karneval/Fasching

Karneval 3The Indianapolis German community is big on celebrating "Fashing" or "Karneval" - German for Mardis Gras. There are celebrations both at the Athenaeum downtown as well as just south of Indianapolis at the German-American Klub (GAK) in Greenwood. There are both adult events and events for children. Students can dress up and join in the fun, or help with the children's "Karneval" or both! This is the last chance to celebrate before Lent, so put on a mask and get out and have some fun!
