Costume of a hallor and lance for water yousting

Besides the costume of the Hallors with its typical 18 buttons, the lance is an interesting object. With such lances the tradition of water jousting is still practiced up to the present day. In Halle (Saale) one can follow this tradition during the lantern festival (Hallesches Laternenfest).
