Cultivating tradition was the focus of the festivities marking the 25th anniversary of the traditional society and drum parade in Antdorf. There was also a traditional costume youth day.
Antdorf – On the occasion of its 25th anniversary, the Customs Association and Drumming Parade (BVT) Antdorf presented itself with a large programme. On Friday evening, the motto in the Höckstadl was: "Who saws the fastest?" On Sunday evening, eleven drumming processions set the pace on the church square. Saturday belonged to the children and young people of the Loisachgau. The traditional costume youth day of the Loisachgau was organized by the mountain costume association "D' Waxnstoana". For the first time since 2019, it took place again and the opportunity was favorable. "We are closely associated with the BVT and support each other at all festivals," explained chairman and youth leader Andreas Huber.
A colorful program was offered at the Youth Day. After the devotion, the 520 children and young people between the ages of four and 15 from a total of 25 regional clubs and from the sponsor association from Söchering went to the play stations. Alternately, the boys and girls showed their dances on the stage of the Höckstadel. The highlight of the day was a parade through Antdorf and the dancing of all boys and girls at the sports grounds.

For the five women's teams, there was only one round in which they had to be fast. Anna and Maria Hinterholzer from Münsing won the competition with just under 42 seconds. Florian Thanner, Chairman of the BVT, was satisfied with the evening: "The atmosphere was great," he said. Anneliese Steibli
