the week of fashings is a huge party! the weird thing for me, is the amount of drinking that goes on. it's crazy. the parade goers and the paraders. for this idaho girl, having paraders hand out candy to the kids and cups of alcohol to the adults, was the craziest thing i had ever seen
if you visit germany at the end of february, look up faschinigs, umzugs, nachtumzug. you should be able to find one close to you. they are tons of fun and definitely not your typical american parade. don't forget to buy a pin while you're there. some of the bigger parades have some awesome looking necklaces and pins, the smaller one just have plastic ones. it's about the collecting though. come join us next faschings!
