    Ancient ceremony in the Tyrol celebrates the arrival of Spring.

    Full title reads: "Imst. 'Spring is Coming!' Tyrolese version!! Since heathen days, the peasants have depicted Winters last struggles against messengers of Spring with barbaric dance."

    Imst, Bavaria, Germany.

    Parade through streets. Large float carries man and woman dressed as King and Queen of Winter. People in odd costumes and masks perform strange dance as they move in procession around the town. A float follows bearing a man and woman dressed as bringers of Spring.
