No "O'zapft is" echoes heuer about the Waitzinger Wiese in Miesbach: The folk festival cancelled due to Corona. A disaster, the carny-boss.
Miesbach – Always on the last weekend of June in Miesbach: On the s, comes the people. But this year, the "O'zapft is" the new mayor Gerhard Braun Miller echoes through the tent on the Waitzinger Wiese. And instead of beer benches, rides and fairground stalls only for Parking cars in the square. Blame the Coronavirus, which has also taken the Mies bachern their annual shindig.
During the fixed Anian wants to host in mid-July, Shortly create, together with the Haberern, after all, a culinary replacement for the popular festival (we reported), stay away from carousels and co., the circle city entirely. Why there is no Alternative and what that means for the fairground industry in Whole, we have asked the organizer of the people's amusement Park and the operator of the Octoberfest car scooter, Bernhard Kollmann from home Stetten (district of Munich), in an Interview.
Mr. Kollmann, what are you doing on Friday evening?
Bernhard Kollmann: Probably, I'm helping my daughter, who has leased the restaurant at the heimstettener see. But to be honest, I would prefer to be with the people-start in Miesbach. The Showmanship is a real family tradition. Because the cancellation is already pretty hard.
Especially since it is not the only one in the year 2020.
Bernhard Kollmann: Exactly. The season is for us, the showmen's actually complete. For the last Time, what I gained on the Christmas markets. Since then, absolute standstill, and it is not in view when that might change.
In Munich and other large cities, but at least in the conversation, a folk festival with rides to different places to align. It would have been an Option for Miesbach?
Bernhard Kollmann: no, the city is too small, and there is a lack of walk-in customers. If I were to go alone, my bumper car, I would have to do very much advertising, and that is expensive. And let's be honest: With only one ride alone, no people to come on a festive mood. Therefore, it is considered that in Munich, the Oktoberfest-replacement in the Olympic Park. Since you could observe the distances, and yet enough would come so that enough people.

Bernhard Kollmann: (laughs) no, so close you don't come here again. But we must pay attention to the fact that people adhere to when Waiting distance and the steering wheels of the Scooter after each use, disinfect.
And what time is allowed to take the Miesbacher back at the tax place?
Bernhard Kollmann: I hope in the coming year! A season without people would be a catastrophe, and would not survive many of the showmen. Also, I'd have to find another Job. I remain optimistic, however. At the latest, in December, we need certainty, because then the plans for the folk festivals 2021 start.
And if the pandemic is not over still?
Bernhard Kollmann: we need to talk seriously about Alternatives. For example, a Festival with a beer garden, booths, and rides. If you plan well, it should be actually feasible. But, of course, a real people, we would all prefer.
