Basler Fasnacht 2020

I'm planning a visit to Basler Fasnacht in March, not having been before, though I have been to Lucerne Fasnacht.

Other than the key events, are there any other fringe events worth visiting?

Where is the best place to see the procession?

After Fasnacht, I will be in Zurich for a few days as I haven't been back to Switzerland for well over a year. I hope to catch up with some of you in either location.

I’ll be with a clique - so looking at the person in front.

We do this on the Tuesday - if you want to go a bit off-piste

Start off with the Liestaler fire parade the day before then slowly make your way back to Basel for the Morgenstraich and if you don´t have tinnitus you will have afterwards.

As you are probably aware, this has been cancelled along with all events having more than 1000 people, due to the Corona virus

People are still stocking up on booze, nonetheless.
