Fasching 2011 in Dietfurt, Bavaria, Germany

Fasching time is over in Germany. Today is Ash Wednesday and for Christian’s belief especially for the Catholics, it is a day of repentance and the beginning of Lenten Season. It also means that the day before Ash Wednesday is the end of the fasching or carnival celebration. The Fasching, also called in German language as Fastnacht, Karneval, Fastnet depending on the place or city where it is celebrated.

Last Sunday, March 6, 2011, we witnessed the Faschingszug or carnival parade in Hemau, a town in Regensburg, Bavaria, Germany. We did not expect that they also had a very lively and interesting carnival parade. Here are some of the images we took that day.
