Carnival Street Parade 2019 – Wiesbaden/Germany

The Germans take their carnival season very indeed – the whole country literally goes crazy for almost a week, and all’s above board: costumes, street parades, crazy speeches, endless parties…and nobody minds turning into a complete ‘fool’ for those few days! The floats parading down the streets give everyone and everything a good rap, mocking whatever is going wrong in life, job, family and foremost politics – so BREXIT is obviously at the top of the agenda! Whilst caramel sweets get thrown into the crowds to keep the fools happy, chanting the official greeting of ‘Helau’, which is indigenous to the Bundesland Hesse, but can also vary according to the region. Press that play button now to sample some proper German madness, as our camera went right amongst the crowd.
