• Short Summary

    Single people dress in odd costumes and parade the streets with a decorated tree in Austria.

  • Description

    Titles read: "SWEETHEARTS' CARNIVAL!"

    Tyrol, Austria.

    Several shots of a centuries-old custom in Austria where unmarried men and women have to dress up in strange clownish costumes of leaves and coned hats and parade through the streets with a decorated tree trunk. The idea is to bring the unattached young people together. Brief shot of men and women walking arm in arm, following a band in a procession on their way to church to get married (?). People in odd costumes follow on behind.
