Better Hold On To You Hat After Taking That Pretzel Feb 19, 2012, 9-50 AM

The scissor men from Hüfingen are one of the groups that makes Fasnet parades different from parades in the US. With their extending or stretching scissors (more like grabbers or tongs) they walk along the parade route and take unsuspecting spectators' hats. Making the person jump or follow them to retrieve their hat. There are other guilds from other towns that also use the streckshere. This group is from Hüfingen.
