With “Wolfratshausen Narrisch” the momentum comes late - but then really.

Six Gardens danced on the open-air stage at Marienplatz.

Wolfratshausen – Real fans, they don’t let anything stop them.

For example, cold, wet Sunday weather is not a reason for cancellation for convinced carnival fans. That's why leopards and Hawaii vacationers met with doctors and Super Mario at Wolfratshausen's Marienplatz in the afternoon.

At “Wolfratshausen Narrisch” they celebrated carnival in the open air.

Some of the brightly colored costumes were hard to see because they were hidden under winter jackets.

During his welcome, cultural representative Sepp Schwarzenbach looked at a lot of concrete in front of the stage.

The guests arrived in dribs and drabs: about an hour and a half after the start, the place was much more colorful.

“I think it's wonderful, I think everyone here is happy,” said Schwarzenbach in his rain-soaked bee costume with black antennae on his head.

There was a lot of coming and going at the event – ​​“it was well attended considering the weather”.

What impressed Schwarzenbach: “The Guards are very committed.” Six of them took the stage.

Over time there were more and more guests.

During the lively performance of Gleisenia Unterhaching, significantly more enthusiasts gathered in front of the stage.

A few children were infected by the rhythm and jumped up and down in front of the stage - less coordinated, but just as enthusiastic as the dancers.

Michaela and Georg Bauer watched the foolish goings-on from a safe distance under a protective pavilion.

“We are not big carnival fans,” explained Michaela Bauer.

“But if something was going on, we didn’t want to sit at home.”

That's exactly how eleven-year-old Emily saw it.

She watched the Fool's Island dance with a friend and played on Marktstrasse.

She didn't spontaneously have a costume at hand, but knew that you can be inventive at Carnival: "I'll just go as a girl." The young woman from Wolfratshausen found the event "very funny."

And that was ultimately the organizers' plan.

Fools' Island Prince Pascal I thanked the guests at Marienplatz before the Prince Couple Waltz for coming “in the dream weather”.

He was convinced that things would be sunnier on the last days of his term in office – Shrove Monday and Shrove Tuesday.

“There’s no need for that,” a guest called out to him.

Carnival also works in the drizzle.

Peter Steinberger is convinced of this.

The highest-ranking carnivalist in Upper Bavaria - he is president of the district carnival association - was pleased that “some people came”.

When it came to the weather report, “I expected less.”

At the Fool's Island performance, a good 100 people celebrated in front of the stage.

Steinberger himself also danced through Marktstrasse again and again.

With a colorful bodysuit and a star on his cap, he even sang along to a performance by Bayern Hans.

“If you put your heart into it, then carnival isn’t strenuous,” said Steinberger in a quiet moment.

And the weather doesn't matter either.
