We're in the middle of Maškare season in Croatia. It's like Carnival in Brazil and is typically celebrated by countries that are predominantly Catholic.  In small town Croatia it looks more like trick-or-treating than anything else.  You'd have to go to one of the bigger cities like Rijeka to attend a parade and enjoy the festivities.

So we were a little taken aback when we heard this band playing down the street. The middle of a snowstorm in February doesn't seem like the most celebratory time, but give these guys credit (and candy) they endured the weather in order to keep the tradition.  Take a look:

Note: I have no control over what YouTube suggests after the clip finishes.
