Of course, it wasn't only the ladies who were colourful. Anywhere that free beer is being dispensed there's bound to be a male or two and Carnivale was no exception. If you didn't come away with a free beer, lolly, hat or any of the other myriad of souvenirs you probably felt impoverished.
Another thing that impressed me that, at the end of the parade, a bevy of street sweepers were following and the whole mess was cleaned up within ten minutes of the parade passing. Typical German efficiency.
