PSIP Description: 
The Fasnet-Fasnacht Carnival celebrates the local culture in the German state of Baden-Wuerttemberg.
Long Description: 
Joseph dons his jester's cap and heads to the German state of Baden-Wuerttemberg for Fasnet -- Fasnacht -- Carnival. Each town may call it by a different name, but they all agree it's a non-stop community party that celebrates local culture and chases away the winter blues. Some of the historic carnival characters, like the Narro, date back to the festival's beginning 500 years ago while others are the products of lively modern-day imaginations. From Konstanz on the shores of Lake Constance to the Black Forest villages of Villingen, Oberndorf, Gengenbach, Elzach and Rottweil, Joseph uncovers the festival's history and rejoices in the controlled chaos of tolle tage -- Crazy Days!
