The Day Rababou Burned

Some videos from Carnaval today in Fribourg, ending with the burning of the wood thief Rababou. Basically an acid trip where everyone is speaking in a foreign language (well because they were). Most surreal moment: the guy dressed as Cinderella (whoops Snow White, eh?) leading the band of Dwarfs? You make the call from these short clips.

Set up for this one: we are in a wall to wall sea of people walking behind the parade into Place de Petit St-Jean square in Fribourg’s Vieux Ville. It feels like this only more cramped.

A bit of Rababou’s trial. He had no real defence and for each charge read the crowd wailed “Rababouuuuu”.
