Pictures of Carnival Dancers in Berlin

Picture It: Party Practice

Mardi Gras, Fat Tuesday, Fastnacht, whatever you call it, the countdown has begun for the great day of sin on March 8. But much celebrating is to be done between now and then. In Germany, these performers prepare for Women's Carnival Day, which kicks off carnival next Thursday. Doing whatever they please, women rule the day and drink late into the night. Men can join, if they settle the checks!
