Join in too! The climax of Carnival with the big, official parade - A colourful spectacle with thousands of people in fancy dress. The parade begins at the 12th February 2018 at 10.30 a.m. at the Severinstor in the southern part of the city (Südstadt). The typical material thrown from the floats includes "Strüßjer" (bunches of flowers) and "Kamelle" (sweets), which are loudly demanded by the crowds by shouting "Kamelle". Also chocolate boxes and bars, bottles of Eau de Cologne and countless other small gifts are thrown from the floats as well.
