Entitled Mardi Gras, Carnivale, Pancake Day, Fat Tuesday and Shrove Tuesday, the holiday is celebrated in many parts of the world. Known as Fasting, Fastacht or Karneval, along the Rhine, in Bavaria and Austria, schools, banks and most businesses will be closed. Parades, costumes, dances and merry-making take over, led by the Fasching sprinz or Prince Carnival. Other cities with flamboyant festivities include New Orleans and Mobile, Rio de Janeiro, Venice, Italy, and Havre de Grace. Customs include wearing beads, donning elaborate masks and costumes, attending balls and parades and feasting and frolicking far into the night.
