Dancing in the Streets

Several hundred thousand Munich residents and a few of their closest friends converged on central Munich today for the final day of Faschings 2008, a Bavarian version of Carnival. What turns out to be the city’s second biggest festival (after Octoberfest), was met with good weather and good spirits well into the evening. The heart of the celebration was at the Viktualienmarket, which has a long tradition dating to the nineteenth century, including the dancing of the Market Women ~ a must see next year!
