Spring Carnival paraders in Cerkno dress in costumes to celebrate Laufarija. There are 25 different characters wearing costumes--Pust, Ivy Man, Fleece Man and others who convict Pust in a play charging him for all the bad things that happened the past year. The cultural tradition is slightly varied in numerous communities throughout the Alps.
