Sh-sh-sh-sugar high!

Fasching was this weekend! It's the equivalent of Carnival in Italy, or Mardi Gras in the States, although a bit more child-friendly than Mardi Gras.

So Megan and Miss Elli and I packed up the kids and toted them to the town center and watched the goofballs come out! 

Everyone dresses up like it's Halloween (I even saw Harry Potter!) even the adults, and then they all line up along the parade route and scramble for candy and/ or alcohol that is thrown into the crowd. Mom's fight over little goodies for their kids and older women fight over little liquor bottles. 

This is easily the most adorable thing I've ever seen, it's the local playgroup kids and their parents:

A pretty good Italian Karaoke float:

A REALLY cool train!

And the prince himself with his loyal (and a little drunk) attendee:

The boys got to eat all the candy they could find, which turned out to be a lot once people just started dumping handfuls of it into their wagon!!


  1. I love Johnny's raised eyebrow! How cute!


  2. So cute! I made the mistake of taking Ani to the one in Köln when Eric was deployed. Crazy! The small town parades are more fun :)

  3. Aww... I need to get my pics on my computer!! That was SO much fun!!! Anton was in a sugar coma on the way home, he didn't wake up until after the electrician was long gone :)

  4. Haha! J was the opposite, he screamed until about 6:30!

  5. This looks like so much fun!! I LOVE festivals and fairs. And who wouldn't love beating up your neighbor for an airplane bottle? Heehee.

  6. That is so cool! I used to love Fasching when I lived in Germany. Your kids are so cute enjoying their treats!

  7. The festivals in germany are plentiful, that's for sure!! :)
