Those are wonderful. People don't celebrate it here like they do other places.

Very fun FASNACHT photos! Looks like our Halloween over here, sort of. Wish I were there to enjoy the fun!

Wonderful shots - a fun time was had by all! About the only place in the US that does this kind of thing is New Orleans...

I must say, though, I identify most with the "elder clown."
