Türkenfeld - After the pandemic-related cancellation in 2020, the New Year's Eve ride should take place again on December 31 this year.
Mayor Emanuel Staffler announced this.
The ride, traditionally held on the last day of a year, goes back to a centuries-old vow.
At that time the Turkish fields thanked the Holy New Year's Eve for surviving a cattle epidemic.
Staffler emphasizes: "We want to send a signal that points towards normality".
Precisely because the traditional event is a reminder every year of overcoming an extraordinary situation, the message of the New Year's Eve ride is more relevant than ever.
Which mutual protection requirements have to be observed will be clarified in the coming weeks.
A working group has been formed from the ranks of the municipal council to prepare the event and lead it into the future.
In addition to Staffler, the council members Marco Göbel, Irmgard Meissner, Gerhard Müller and Johannes Wagner belong to this group.
“We basically want to stick to the tried and tested procedure,” says Staffler.
However, innovations are also planned.
The new town center, which is then expected to be completed, will play a more prominent role in the ride.
It is also planned to enable a sociable get-together in the castle courtyard or Drexlhof.
Always in compliance with the necessary requirements.
