Some had already stopped believing in a carnival in Wartenberg: The Narrhalla and Dance United are pounding another season out of the ground.
– The Wartenberg carnival is saved: There will be a full-fledged ball on February 4th in the Trachtenstadl.
Then on Shrove Tuesday, a carnival hustle and bustle is planned, but not on the market square, but "indoor" in the Strogenhalle.
The latter makes you independent of the weather, but according to the current planning status, it ends at 10 p.m. - unless a financially viable arrangement is found in the form of a noise protection wall, which would have to be built because of the neighboring residential buildings.
The market town council will decide on this in its upcoming meeting, as Mayor Christian Pröbst announced in a letter to the association.
This year's carnival is made possible by a completely new cooperation between Narrhalla Wartenberg and the Dance United association.
This cooperation was officially announced at the Narrhalla general meeting last Wednesday in the Gasthaus Reiter.
Torsten Drews, chairman of Dance United, came with a number of other board members.
He reported that the first considerations for such a cooperation had already been made together with his predecessor Hans Brückl.
Dance United was very happy to take part.
"It would be a pity to let the carnival in Wartenberg die," he said and continued: "We look forward to working together."
The result now looks like this: Both clubs are organizing the ball together on February 4th.
There will be a big program.
Werner Kobylak's sound service from Wartenberg will take care of the music, but it also needs a break from time to time.
No Colors, the rock band from Wartenberg, will perform.
We also work together with TSV Wartenberg.
He provides the changing rooms for the two Dance United groups.
Torsten Drews could not yet say which groups that will be, but did not rule out that there could be three.
The Volkstrachtenverein will provide hospitality, but there will also be a bar, organized by the two cooperating organizers.
"Hofmarschall" Michael Gruber wants to limit the entrance fee to twelve euros, technical details are still being discussed.
Narrhalla President Anita Zink and Torsten Drews noted that the two clubs have to stomp the carnival out of the ground in record time: "There are still four weeks until the ball, seven weeks until Shrove Tuesday!"
That was also the main reason why Mayor Christian Pröbst's application to revive the tradition of begging marriages had no chance this year.
However, Michael Gruber did not want to rule out that there could be another begging wedding in 2024.
However, the two clubs would now like to see how the offer is received this year.
