Good Lord, that's got to be the weirdest parade I've ever seen. What a strange and wonderful collections of goofballs, machines, pots and pans, and costumes! Amazing. The weather looks good. But is there a theme to this parade or does everyone do whatever they wish to do? I'll bet it's fun to watch and it looks like some folks get right in there and participate. The blackface wouldn't go well over here, though.

Wow, so many different things to see! It looks very interesting and entertaining.
Great photos, Karl!

Yes, the parade has a theme: The Wedding of the "Egetmann". All partecipants are guests, but they can't do what they wish to do, they have to follow a precise protocol. You can find the main characters here:

Incredibly funny and crazy event. I've never seen anything like it and I could not imagine this to us.
Your photos are very very very fantastic.

Each and every photo here just blows my mind! But then, I live in a country with no such tradition as this. Just fascinating!
