Photographer's Note

When we returned from Vitra Campus to Basel in Sunday, we saw everywhere the groups of people marching and playing - flutes, big trumpets and drums. we were very surprised and could not understand what was going on? Usually they were in black dressed and small black hats. I saw these guy sitting with bear so I asked about the event. The said it was Carnival. But we have lent now, I was confused.

Bummel - the strolls form the end of the Carnival Year and take place on the three Sundays following Fasnacht.
 
It is tradition, without costume and larva, with or without instruments to visit the near or further region and the three most beautiful days once more review.
 
From 4 pm the active march through the inner city, most of them take the Free street in the direction of the Market Square.
There were so many groups that I had an impression that every inhabitant of Basel can play an instrument.
