The carnival madness traditionally starts with the handover of town keys. This year, the carnival will end on Tuesday, February 13, with a carnival parade and the Testament read to the crowd in the local dialect, presenting all important events marking the past year in a humorous way and from the perspective of an ordinary man. In the end, the puppet that symbolizes the Prince of Carnival is punished and burned in the bonfire to take away the sins and mischievous behavior displayed throughout the year to the ashes with him.
