Rosensonntagsumzug in Leipzig – Fasching Parade

Today was the Rosensonntagsumzug or the big Fasching parade in Leipzig today.  What’s Fasching? Fasching is Karneval or Carnival. Basically it’s the big celebration before Lent.  In the U.S. we would call it Mardi Gras. It isn’t as heavily celebrated here in Leipzig as it in other cities in Germany. Google told me Köln has the biggest Fasching festival in Germany.


Our little dragon.


Waiting. Waiting. Waiting. When is it going to start?!


MOM! I see it!

Cool old cars.


These guys … No German parade or celebration is complete without a scary troll looking thing.


I have no idea what these were, but don’t mess with them.


Don’t ask them for candy.


If you do you will get a noogie full of confetti!
