Three more celebrations in the anniversary year
This year at the Langenbach fire brigade is all about the 150th anniversary.
The fire brigade started the anniversary year with a New Year's Eve party.
When they asked the Oberhummel and Niederhummel fire departments for sponsorship in mid-January, the comrades proved that they "have enough energy to pull off a party like this", as the Hummler comrades attested to them after a boozy evening with fun tests.
Thus, the festival weekend on 20./21.
May, the Culinaria midsummer celebration on June 24th and the "Long Day of the Open Gates" on September 2nd.
The preparations for this are in full swing.
