Der Fasching von Ramstein: Germans, Americans celebrate local tradition
An elderly couple hang a basket out their window to catch candy thrown during fasching, a festival held across Europe, in the city of Ramstein, Germany, Feb. 28, 2017. While crowds often swarm the streets parades go through to obtain candy and other goods, the elderly and disabled are commonly seen watching from their homes, where parade participants often toss candy their way to make them feel like they’re celebrating with everyone else.
