When you think Mardi Gras, you probably think colorful beads and Bourbon Street. But here in North Georgia, a different kind of celebration is taking place, and it's one that's not for the thin-skinned.
Fasching is a celebration taking place in Germany at the same time as Mardi Gras. And since Helen in Georgia's very own "Alpine village" -- Helen Faschingsverein (the club spearheading the celebration) is planning some very "cool" festivities. The main event is the Helen Faschingsverein River Parade on January 30th -- which brings a huge crowd of brave souls to the Chattahoochee to tube down the cold river!
Good Day Atlanta's Paul Milliken isn't exactly a fan of freezing cold water, but he's never one to turn down a party! He spent the morning in Helen getting a preview of this year's Fasching celebration.
