  • Description

    No titles.

    Cologne, Germany.

    Various shots of the Carnival of the Rhine, which this year has the theme of International Food. It seems to be sleeting or snowing and looks quite a cold and miserable day. People walk along and ride in floats wearing fancy dress costume. A marching band all wear huge apples or tomatoes on their heads. Some people throw food from floats and crowds try to catch it. Several shots of floats, each one depicting a different kind of food and its country of origin. Among them is a huge head made to look like Charles de Gaulle inside a massive oyster.
