How Europe celebrates Carnival
Dancing in uniform in the Rhineland
Uniformed dancers are an important part of almost every German Carnival club. In Cologne, they shout "Alaaf," in Dusseldorf, "Helau." But everywhere in the Rhineland region, people sing and collect "Kamelle," or sweets, during the Carnival parades. Several hundreds tons of goodies are thrown into the costumed crowds during the Carnival Monday parades.
