Personal highlights

  1. Schissdräckzügli: a small group of people without music or a wagon
  2. Purpose: mostly for children and people who do not want to join a big group
  3. Chariot: the backbone of every Schissdräckzügli, pulling confetti and other goods
  4. Räppli: local slang for confetti, one of the most important goods on the carnival
  5. Myself: as a child, I built a small chariot and attended carnival with my family
