Fasching, Day 2

Today was Wiesbaden's big parade. Luckily, the route went just a block from our flat and we had a bright and sunny (if cold) day for it. People on the floats throw all sorts of things to the crowd: popcorn, candy, marshmallows, dishrags, sponges, mousepads, books, drink boxes (watch your head), balls, flowers, and more. We have a pretty good haul - luckily, I'd been warned to take a shopping bag! There was lots of music, too, of course, and some great costumes, both in the parade and in the crowd!
