And they say the camera never lies, eh?
OK, so the woman's head isn't really on fire...Maybe these pictures give a fairer representation of what was really going on.
Yesterday was Sechselauten when the poor 'Boog' (snowman to you and me) gets roasted in a celebration of winter and an attempt to predict what the summer will be like.
Prior to this event there was a big parade - looked like it was a selection of local guilds represented by men and woman in 'olde worlde'* clothing. And there were horses. Lots of horses. Wonder who had to clear up afterwards......
* Actually, I think the menwere doing the representing and the women were the eye candy!
