Event promoter Peter Kamlan, together with a couple of friends, organized the event which was well attended by students and fun loving locals.
“I have organized numerous events across Europe. When I came to intern for a company in Molde, I thought it wise to stage the carnival and liven this city,” said Kamlan.
Making a fashion statement at the carnival was tricky as plummeting temperatures went to merciless digits, leading to unflattering layers and big coats on the streets. But somehow a few brave souls managed to break out and display interesting costumes when they got indoors.
“This is my first carnival event in Molde and I think it is a great idea. I am enjoying myself and loving the atmosphere,“ first year nursing student Helene Aamyri said.
Brazililans, both students and locals living in Molde, gave the carnival a sizzle, gracing the night with flamboyant outfits and jubilantly dancing to Soca beats.
“This carnival was a great idea although it cannot be compared to the event in our country, but we are making the most of it tonight,” said Dalexsandra S. Souza, a Brazilian resident living in Molde.
Out into the night some tipsy revellers stumbled, along with groups of friends trekking back home. drawing a close to the interesting night session.
