Last night of the Evolene Carnaval last night, with the trial and burning of the Poutratze. At first the town square was eerily deserted...

Then the Peluches escort the Poutratze - the evil "Empaillé" - through the village.

Where he is tried, judged and burned, freeing the village from evil spirits!

This must be thirsty work and it gets quite hectic in the beer tent.

At midnight Carnaval ends, and the Pelluches take off their masks.
