Sunset Villa Association

A traditional Danish family fun event to mark the start of Lent.

Kids of all ages dress in costume (similar to Halloween) to take turns hitting the wooden barrel with a bat. The barrel is filled with candy. Whoever knocks out the bottom of the barrel is the Cat-Queen and whoever knocks down the last board is the Cat-King. 

Afterwards, we will decorate twigs (Fastelavnsris), cook Snobrød, enjoy hot chocolate and treats.

Part of this event is outdoors, so dress warmly.

Cost:   $12 per child

​RSVP to Kirsten Skafte,  Entertainment Director, entertainment.sunsetvilla@outlook.com by Sun. Feb. 24.  We need a minimum number of participants to make this event happen, so please confirm your attendance if you’re planning to join us. 

Please note, this is the same day as the first Baker's Sunday of the year.
