6 schilling - Schemen Parade at Imst 1996
Added by Alain Martineau
General Description : The Schemen Parade at Imst is one of the most famous carnival traditions of the Alps. Nevertheless, it´s origin can only be speculated. Modern folklore regards the Schemen Parade as a pre-Lent "festivity carried on since the Late Middle Ages". Though the spectacle was forbidden during the Counter-Reformation and the Enlightenment, it is thanks to the strong Tyrolean bond with tradition that it has been handed down through to the present and successfully asserts itself against commercialization.
