Carnival Parade – Auerbach

OK, this has got to be one of the coolest parade floats I’ve ever seen: a V-8 engine straight piped into a fire breathing dragon and continually revved up by some drunk dudes dressed as medieval knights. Cool!

Carnival

Over the weekend we made long journey over snow covered autobahns and horrible traffic up to a little corner of Nordrhein-Westfalen near the Dutch border. The reason: Carnival. Saturday night was spend among the costumed crowds in Cologne (home to the tallest cathedral in Germany). I’ve never been to Mardi Gras, but imagine it would be something similar, except the for the German Carnival songs that everyone is singing and dancing to the entire night.

On Sunday we went to a cool little parade in the town of Ratheim, near where we were staying.
