Comber is an old Krakow traditional event taking place on the Fat Thursday. It was a fun procession organized by street vendors, mostly women. They were walking from Piaski to Main Market Square, wearing some fun costumes and accompanied by musicians. They were also pulling a puppet made of straw on a rope, ask for contributions and bother men by pulling their beards and putting wreaths made of haulm on their heads. After reaching the Main square they were dancing, singing and drinking wine. The party was finishing in a tavern.
This event was supposed to remind about Krakow mayor Comber, who was considered to be the evil farther of Krakow, who ruled his town badly, and hated street vendors. When he died cracovians were so happy about it that decided to celebrate this event every year on Fat Thursday.
This tradition was kept till 1846, when Austrians forbade the celebration.
