A reveller dances next to a bonfire as the coffin of winter is burned on the last day of the traditional carnival parade of the town, on Shrove Tuesday. The carnival parade of people, called busos, dressed in similar costumes and frightening wooden masks, using various noisy wooden rattlers, begins traditionally on the seventh weekend before Easter to drive away winter.
