It was the culmination would have been in the calendar of every Trachtlers in Lechgau: The 97. Lechgau festival costumes, hosted by the "swallow stoanern" Hohenfurch. However this Festival falls naturally into the category of "big event" and must therefore not be allowed to take place. A unique Situation in the history of the Lechgaus? Not in the least.
County – "We could get started," says Hohenfurchs "swallow stoaner"-Board of management, Franz Linder, and summarizes the status of preparations. For two years the Hohenfurcher a fan of folk costumes planned the celebration to their 100-year anniversary. The program, the chapels were engaged, the innkeeper stood in the wings, and 40 costumes of clubs, six of clubs, 23 bands, seven drummers trains and 13, had a car for the big pageant on the 19. July says.
And then, in mid-April, the Hammer: All great events be cancelled until the end of August. "Of course you think once Sh...', but it had been initiated, Yes, and in the end it is probably also reasonable so," says Linder.
Many a fan of folk costumes in the risk group
Because: "we have costumes in learning, there are many older people who are assessed as a risk group, because you have to ask for anything out." Similarly, it also looks Hohenfurchs mayor and patron Guntram bird singing: "The cancellation is eternally sad and unfortunate, but one must also ask, who would come to the Feast." Because a Fixed-distance rule, or mouth protection was definitely not an Option.
cancellation of before: in the year of establishment of the "swallow stoaner"
But it was in the 112-year history of the Lechgaus, apart from the years of the two world wars, a cancellation of his greatest Strength? Yes. Curiously, in 1920, the year of establishment of the "swallow stoaner".
at the Time, the economy was raging in Germany, in the middle of the world crisis, the "foot - and-mouth disease". Also, at the time, was the children, especially from "infested farms", says school, gatherings prohibited, and "public merrymaking" punishable by law. Ten years later, no Lechgau-costumes feast was held, however, due to a huge Costume buildup in Rosenheim.
at The Moment the air is out
what's next now for the "swallow stoanern"? "At the Moment the air is out of it," explains Linder, the mood in the club. Still hope to be able to at least the evening for the 100-Year-old heuer host. But may be this is not the responsibility Linders, because he is expected to be in the autumn of his office after 27 years. It could have been the crowning achievement of his presidency – is still a bitter aftertaste. "We will meet soon, but I can already say that there will be no so-called second festival next year. We may apply to the Gaufest 2023, because for the next two years it is forgiven already.“
sponsors are still in the boat
would be The basic structure-then, because the sponsors are still in the boat. "No one has claimed until now, his contribution. This is created as a reserve for the next Festival,“ says Linder grateful.
Also Gauvorstand Franz Multerer is sad that "the heart of the entire year" is missing. But he sees it also as an opportunity: "Maybe learns everything, including the club life and the costumes thing, after the crisis, an even higher level of appreciation. And it's all so obvious.“ Therefore, he looks optimistic to the first appointment, which could take place in the Lechgau: The 70. Gauwallfahrt on the Hohen peißenberg at 6. September. An anniversary that would be under a very special star.
