Kinderblochziehen Kinderblochziehen

Kid´s Blochziehen. Fiss.

Dark moorles, wild bears and little witches

The Kids ,,Blochziehen'' is an old carnival custom that is popular in Fiss in Tyrol. This custom is intended to drive away the winter.

The young participants are the big stars here: artistically carved wooden masks, dwarves, witches and a wild bear.
This custom has been practiced by children every four years for half a century - in imitation of the adults.

The carnival custom in Fiss takes its name from the ,,Bloch'', a long trunk. It represents a plow that breaks open the field for sowing and heralds the beginning of spring. The ,,Bloch'' is pulled through the village by the young bear riders (symbolizing the tamers of nature), the lively Mohrelen and other helpers.
In addition to the evil, the long winter is also brought to an end.

At the end of the tribe, the ,,Schwoaftuifl'' (tail devil) entertains the audience with crazy ideas and dances and tries to stop the procession. He is supported by his little witches. They embody the harsh winter, which was a real problem for the inhabitants of Serfaus, Fiss and Ladis just a few decades ago. At the end of the parade, the ,,Bloch'' is auctioned off.
