Zinter & Purjatzl
Also Sackner and Altfrankspritzer take part in Zurfen. However, they leave their Spritzen (spray guns) at home and bring small sticks instead, which they also use to measure their strength in Zurfen. The Altfranken are carrying lanterns with them to illuminate the Zurfen of the witches, because of this they are called Zinter on this day (zünden = lighting up). The procession of Auskehren is lead by the Purjatzl, who wears the costume of a Turesåckner. They are equipped with wooden rattles, which can be heard from quite a distance. Also the bears take part in Auskehren and appear even more frightful at night than during the day and still more so because of the hollow shouts of their drivers.
