Here is a video of Masopust (Czech Carnival) in my local town of Horice Na Sumave. What I love about the Horice version is that it is very much by and for the locals. Masopust will be celebrated in Cesky Krumlov in just over a week's time. I will try and get a video of that too, so you can see the differences between the two.
Of course there is far more to Masopust than what you see here, for more see my previous blogs on the subject, or better still come and experience yourself.
PS Sorry about the spelling mistake at the end of the video - goodness knows how many times I watched the thing and still I didn't see it until it went up on Youtube!
