Another unusual festival is celebrated annually on January 6. It is called "Ice dispute". On this day a procession consisting of most respected men of the city goes to the Weser River in order to check whether it has frozen this year. People dress up in the costumes of Magi, vintage tuxedos and cylinders – the whole procession looks very impressive. Bremen inhabitants follow many traditions and customs of their ancestors for more than one hundred years. This fact adds some unforgettable hospitable charm to the city.
February 25 is the time of one of the biggest annual music festivals - «Bremer Karneval» or the Carnival of samba. This interesting festival has appeared not long ago. It held here for the first time in 1985. The idea of organizing the celebration of the famous Brazilian dance belongs to students of Bremen Dance School. This holiday has impressed the local people so much, that success has been totally predicable. Within just several years a modest Brazilian party has turned into a large-scale carnival, which is attended by thousands of people. Nowadays a grand procession of dancers is accompanied by orchestra and theater groups that organize fascinating and engaging performances right on the streets of the city.
