After five days of Carnival celebrations, this was the last time we were getting dressed up to go and see the big parade in Düsseldorf (1 million visitors, 5 tonnes of candy, over 100 floats, 40 bands, and 5.5 kilometers long).
I found another costume in my sister's costume grab bag. Sophie is dressed up as a princess for a change.
We went with our next door neighbors, Andrés and his family.
Sandra could not believe how absolutely everyone was in fancy dress on the bus and train. I told her that it is just a normal Monday in Düsseldorf.
We found a pretty good spot right at the beginning of the parade. Finally a sunny day.
Despite loud "Helau's" on Sophie's end, the candy collection turned out to be quite meager today. But that was okay: we only have two full bags at home already.
After about 50 minutes Sophie had had enough and we went home to have some ice cream instead.
