The Germans love their festivals. Without fail there is always some kind of fest going on each month. Whether it be for the arts, ballets, beer, operas, or history, there is a festival for every kind of person. Every February the festival called Fasching happens. The best way to describe this fest is a cross between our Halloween and Mardi Gra. The people dress up, have large parades where candy and other goodies are thrown from the floats. Around the parade sights there are food and beer tents set up. The locals and the Munich Hotels are the best people to ask about what kind of fest is going on when you are visiting.
