Here's another scene from the kick off of the Carnival season. I'm not quite sure exactly how this crew of "Bloom Where you are Planted" revelers put these outfits together, but they were quite the hit - especailly next to the scary witches, afro maniacs, or the Viking Warriors (when was the last time you saw Vikings in Bavaria - anyway). Most of the festivities will happen on Feb 14-16 leading up to Fat Tuesday. If you prefer to move away from the funny masks, flower women, and crazy beer drinking, you could try a taste of the real thing - the Brazilian Carnival show at the Gasteig where they will highlight the rich musical tradition, as well as new choreographies of Samba and Bossa Nova.
