Carnival in Schömberg

The little town of Schömberg, Germany is famous for one thing: the Dance of the Fools they stage every year for Carnival.

These costumes are amazing:
The two main types of Schömberg carnival figures take part: the „Fransenkleidle“ with their colorful fringed costumes and small bells, and the „Fuchswadel“ with their white, painted costumes, larger bells and red fox tails. The dance is led by two soldier figures called „Husar“. The local marching band plays the „Narrenmarsch“ over and over again during the whole hour that this spectacular show lasts.
