On Fasching Sunday there is München Narrisch, or Mad Munich, where thousands hit the streets to party.

On Sunday afternoon, the various quarters of the city and the schools have their special carnival street parades which sometimes are even more original than the official parade on Rose Monday.

Camival Sunday (Sunday 26th February) is family day with a !arge parade through the city past Karolinenplatz and Konigsplatz to the Lowenbraukeller. Bright floats with people in fancy dress play music, dance and throw sweets into the crowd. Also part of the parade are bands and acrobats to entertain the crowds. The parade begins about 11am and lasts for over an hour.
