Even at the beginning, many carnival people hide under the cover of rain on Monday afternoons, only to slowly come into the colorful and spectacular disguise. Apart from the annual bunny or unicorn one-piece, some curiosities and pearls of inflammatory art have mixed with the Carnival people.
As a meal in and with Carnival: SOS Backpack and Trail Mix
Beginning with two gentlemen. They wear hiking clothes and a board on their back. It was enclosed with bread, a drink, toilet paper, breeches and soldiers. One of the two says, “We’ve put together what you need in the mountains.” “We are from Niedwalden,” adds the other as a kind of explanation of the subject.
There are not yet two other gentlemen who not only get through the carnival with liquid food, but also ingest solid food. They are each packet of trail mix.
However, they do not have themselves. “We ate supplies on Thursday,” one of the two disguised people explains. They came up with the idea because the alcohol they drink at the carnival has to be replenished anyway.
“We are not very close.”
Two gentlemen, disguised as “student feeds”
“What looks so simple takes a lot of work,” one of the two says. And if you look closely, you really pay attention to some fine details. For example, a label with nutritional information on the back. “Thanks to plastic packaging, we are also well armed against the weather,” he says. However, they are not too tight, they say with laughter. It is uncertain whether this refers to the level of packaging or alcohol.
Apropos is not very close: even from far away you can hear on Schwanplatz, no, not “Gugge”, but the “Happy Birthday” melody. Behind an entire group of Asian tourists, five moving pieces of cake depict the birthday song. Not only a hit with tourists.
Horw now has a “small train” on Pilatus
Almost not getting along with the next candidates either. Because when many families get together and pack their children in a mobile, but quite heavy gondola, there is hardly any space left on the streets.
A total of fourteen people are out and about as gondolas or hikers this Monday. “Winkel now also has direct access to Pilate,” a woman says: “Winkel Drechen”, pointing to Gondola’s inscription.
Four members of the Balayetti group are also enjoying the move. As a coffee grinder, two coffee pots and a bilateral figure, they meditate (forced by costume) and enjoy the parade in front of the Hotel Schweizerhof.
Lucerne presents himself as a big chicken coop
Suddenly you only meet chickens and see girls very close to them. Once in the parade and once towards the old city.
In particular, the Chicken Chunk, consisting of four women, is reflected in their lively and lively manner. Tuffing takes place here, glasses are removed and a saying is left there, but then the photo fits. “We’re not only chickens in real life, but also at a carnival,” laughs one of the women as they move.
Meanwhile, clouds have started filtering and the blue sky can be seen now and then. The sun also shines on many faces, which is quite bad for the mind. But there is still a strong wind, especially on the pier and on the quail.
Especially a dinosaur more than two meters tall or less than two meters tall, the woman flows dangerously with the wind. “I am afraid now and then that I will be blown away by the wind,” she says. But everything is still good and he has a strong swan that can catch him, she says, disguising his partner as a swan.
Disguised groups of cacti are less likely to be close to the body, as cable spikes propagate from their green theaters. The panel is called “Super Easy”, “Mr. Cactus”. “The effort and income is right for us with this dress,” says the group, which is made up of residents of Rothenburgern and Lucerne.
Thanks to the unexpectedly beautiful weather in the afternoon, you can almost think you’re looking at the stars – at least you can see them over the heads of two gentlemen. He is wearing a jacket made of the United Kingdom flag. Wig on head: Blue with yellow EU stars on it.
This is actually an illusion for Brexit, explaining either of the two. “The main thing is that it is updated daily,” he says with a laugh. “But of course the subject cannot be interpreted politically either,” he says. After all, they have only stars on their heads. Carnival is not the right place for a deeper message, but one thing is clear: “We are primarily against Trump.” Then treat yourself to a beer from a nearby mobile bar.
