About The Event
Rosenmontag (Rose Monday), acts the grand finale of Germany’s Karneval season and beginning of Lent. Germans throughout the county, and specifically Köln, host parades where sweets (Kamelle) are thrown into the crowds lining the streets among cries of “Helau” or “Alaaf.” Elaborate costumes, floats, and jubilation flood the country and it is our pleasure to share in the fun here in America. Thee most spirited of Karneval revelers enjoy the final hurrah. The name “Rosenmontag”, derives from “rasen montag” to rave or rage or “live-it-up Monday!” And, live it up we do!
