Cleveland's Kurentovanje — A Slovenian Carnival

So this happened last weekend in Cleveland:

I lifted this description right from the Cleveland Kurentovanje website, because honestly, I have no idea what’s happening here:

Kurentovanje (koo-rahn-toh-VAHN-yay) is the most popular carnival event in Slovenia and the central figure of the carnival, the Kurent, is believed to chase away winter and usher in spring. The day will be filled with costumes, a parade, food and drink, heritage and fuzzy Kurents.
