Traditionally for the region the winter is not evicted on Carnival, but during lent on the Sunday Laetare, on this day the Summerday Parade (Sommertagszug) is held, mostly at the beginning of March.

At this parade, which consists mostly of children, a giant snow man effigy is carried through town to the Klipfelsau park, and burned as a symbol for the winter.
