The Hallstadt Gaudiwurm grows. 22 groups, six more than in the previous year, could welcome moderator Manuel Reitberger at the market place, where all participants were introduced briefly. The organization was praised many times – only not the weather. But not even the most active carnival club has any influence on that …
For the fourth time, the fools paraded through Hallstadt. The still young carnival parade has established itself in recent years and attracts more and more participants. Even if it snowed this time partly, the tendency did not do any damage.
