Yesterday Y and two other friends visited Mainz for the annual carnival. It is a tradition where people wear costumes and have fun together. I saw so many different costumes and I am surprised and amazed by peoples creativity. It is really cool that everyone is engaged, regardless of age.
We watched the parade as it went though the city. Everyone was happy and the people who were attending the parade threw candy at the crowd as they shouted the carnival greeting “Helau”. We had such a great time.

The traditional carnival mask. A bit creepy, according to me.
Thanks guys, for sharing your crazy traditions with me. (I was dressed as cat woman, as you can see)
