Due to the strict Jesuit prohibitions in olden days, the central Tyrol Fasnacht tends to ends on Shrove Thursday, a few days earlier than elsewhere.
This film is part of Carnival King of Europe DVD 5 PARADING THE VILLAGE. On Carnival days, the village is brought back to life thanks to the rejuvenating, well wishing presence of ritual masks.
