Fasnact aka Car-ni-val in town!


To my amazement carnival has arrived to Brunnen!     

Named ‘Fasnact’, each week for a month a different village stages a parade in its streets with fancy dress as monsters, celebrities and alike. Brass bands with big drums make up a large proportion of the parade and they drive down the street throwing confetti and oranges to people! I wasn’t really on the hunt for these oranges but still caught six or seven and enjoyed a few Glu-wines as the parade passed through.   They then have some tents which the bands continue to play at into the night, covering big hits but playing them slightly out of time to give a Carnival feeling – basically they sound like they’re drunk haha. What a night, I had the day off today and made the most of last night. Good times
