• Short Summary

    A German carnival with lots of bizarre fancy dress costumes, floats and figures.

  • Description

    Bavaria (?), Germany.

    Various shots of a huge carnival procession moving through the streets of a German town. A band marches along, large figures ride along on floats, people in fancy dress costume ride on the floats and walk along behind. A model stork heads one float, carrying two dummy babies in its mouth.

    Brief shot of three men in drag walking along. People in the crowd cheer. An enormous figure of John Bull is seen on a float, holding two pieces of 'colony' land in his hands. Men walk along wearing long johns and beer barrels around their waists. German policemen dance in the street with girls.
