Blauw-wit Mariarade

A scene from the Hoensbroek Carnaval parade, this afternoon.
Each part of town has it's own Princes, dressed up groups and carnaval floats. This is the float of Mariarade (where I live). The group is called Blauw-wit (blue-white, I guess after the iconic colours of Mother Maria). The colourful dressed up group is walking/dancing behind, on the rhythm of local Carnaval music.
We were lucky with the weather: the forecast had told us about heavy rain and gusts of wind, but that started only after the last float (of the prince of Hoensbroek) arrived at the market square.
