The Swakopmund municipality also took part in the street procession organised by the Küska.
“You have had enough fun… It is time to give the key back”, said mayor Paulina Nashilundo jokingly as she accepted the golden key from this years’ prince and princess.
Clearly there are many dogs at the Swakopmund SPCA up for adoption. That is why they were taken for a walk during the street procession, some of pets might have found a new owner.
It was an entire week filled with laughter, cheer and humour, but all things come to an end.
The Swakopmund carnival, Küska, celebrated a golden conclusion on Saturday, after a very successful street procession through town. The event was described as the best in years. The streets were filled with curious onlookers as the imaginatively decorated vehicles made their way through Swakopmund.
“You have had enough fun… it is time to give the key to the town back,” said mayor Paulina Nashilundo jokingly as she accepted the golden key from this year’s prince and princess.
The entire carnival was described as one of the best yet. The hall in the Haus der Jugend was filled to the brim during the various evenings, and guests commended the well-organised programme.
