It is still Fasching or carnival season in Germany. I have been watching the carnival shows on German televisions the past days. I really want to visit some of the biggest carnivals in the country like the ones in Cologne, Mainz or Dusseldorf but until now, I still did not have the chance. I heard over the news today that the carnival parades in some of these cities were cancelled due to bad weather. That was quite sad.

Although, I did not really experience the biggest Fasching or carnivals in Germany, at least I had witnessed some of it in Bavaria. One of my favorite places to go in the region is this town called Dietfurt. This is where the Chinese Carnival is taking place every year.

One thing I love to see is the parade that goes around the town. During the parade, you can find very interesting carnival costumes from pirates, to fairies, doctors, nurses, policemen, witches, dwarfs, hippies costumes and many more. There are also street performers from musicians who plays violin, drums, trumpets, guitars and other musical instruments. After the parade, there are also live shows and group of bands playing at the town center. For sure you can also find jhs pedals use by the musicians.
Here is a little information about Fasching or carnival: The carnival session, also known as the "Fifth Season", begins each year on 11 November at 11:11 a.m. and finishes on Ash Wednesday of the following year with the main festivities happening around Rosenmontag (Rose Monday).
It is indeed such fun moments visiting celebrations like this! I love it!
