Germany’s biggest bash …

The Harlequin spreads confetti over the crowd during a past Fasching parade in Trier, Germany. Many local communities will host Fasching parades up until Ash Wednesday, Feb. 18. Many of the parades will take place Feb. 14-16. Observers stand in the streets, cheering, singing and dancing. For any parade, people and children are advised to bring bags to collect the candies and sweets that the Fasching fools hand out or throw into the crowd. Although it is not a must, some people dress up for viewing a parade. Music and entertainment typically occurs in public spots following the parades. (U.S. Air Force photo by Iris Reiff/Released)
