    Background: Cologne celebrated its gay and colourful "Fasching" carnival, Feb 29. when thousands crammed the streets to watch a display of numerous, imaginatively constructed "floats" passing along of the procession route."
    Fancy dress was the order of this very unhibited day, and revellers carried their bottles with them as they celebrated in the streets, danced round policemen, and kissed their girl-friend - or the nearest one available.

    Most Rhineland towns were celebrating this annual carnival day, and almost everyone wore at least a funny hat and entered full-heartedly into the spirit of the thing.

    The Cologne carnival is part of general pre-Lenten festivities celebrated throughout Germany and other Catholic countries before Ash Wednesday - Mar 2 this year.
