The carnival parade of people dressed in similar costumes and frightening wooden masks, using various noisy wooden rattlers is traditionally held on the seventh weekend before Easter to drive away winter, and is a revival of a legend, which says the ethnic Croats crossed the river to ambush the Osmanli Turkish troops, who escaped in panic seeing the terrifying figures during the Turkish occupation of Hungary.

Rural carnival of Lanz is held on February 11, 2018 in Lantz, Spain. The carnival is a great tradition, where the forces of evil and good face-off in a symbolic battle in which the thirst of justice mobilizes the popular ires. Several prominent figures accompany him in the parade: Ziripot, easy-going man and chubby person done based on stuffed sacks of ferns and hay, who scarcely can be kept in foot; the Zaldiko, horse chases fierceness that rushes forth at him up to it throwing at the soil; the Arotzak carry hammers and pliers, and run after the Zaldiko to shoe it, and finally the Txatxos, which sheathed in skins of animals and armed with sticks and brooms, shout while scourge to all the presents.
