Every year our street shuts down and we become trapped on a parade route for the local Karneval celebration. This year 159 floats and bands passed by. They were filled with costumed men, women, children and animals as they celebrated before the beginning of Lent.
Here are a few pictures and videos to summarize the day.
Watching the parade.
I’d love one of these suits!
Notice the custom beverage holder.
Apparently this is the Funkwagon.
Fire breathing tractor dragon.
Spotted HE-MAN, Master of the Universe on the back of a float.
Some blockheads watching the parade.
Aftermath of the parade. In true German fashion this was completely cleaned up 15 minutes later.
Aftermath at home.
