“Kerwa zamspielen” and off we go

Neuhaus – when brass music can be heard throughout the village on a friday evening in september, when the kerwas boys run through the streets singing and drinking, then the people of neuhaus know: it's kerwa again.

For several years now, the boys have been opening their festival with the "kerwa zamspielen" (playing together at the kerwa). An action in which the kerwa is roughed in with the whole village. "We want to cultivate the french culture and customs", says local association chairman julian eibert.

The local association is five years old this year – and its 130 members had plenty of reason to celebrate. In the past, the kirchweih took place in a guesthouse in neuhaus. "We said as kerwasburschen: we want something rougher", explains eibert. That's why they founded the local association five years ago, which since then has also helped out other associations in the village and organized the entire kerwa. So they have also carried out various actions for the village and among other things put up village entrance signs.

Mayor karsten fischkal showed great respect for the young adults who had already done a lot of work.

The 85 helpers have been working since tuesday to set up the marquee, bar and stage on their own initiative. They booked the music for last weekend a year in advance: nachtschicht and gerchli. "A quarter to half a year before, the planning really starts", says chairman eibert. The start of the kerwa was a success on friday evening, and mayor fischkal needed "three well-aimed blows", to open the barrel. "That was a really old, traditional barrel", he noted.

And so it also fitted the charm of the kerwa: tradition-conscious, but still with new ideas. Naturally, therefore, on saturday evening, the kerwas tree was also put up.

The tent and the marquee have been standing for years at the entrance to the town in a place that is otherwise a gravel parking lot. But there, it is difficult to get cigarette butts and the like out again after the church fair, reports the local association. They are very happy with the location of their tent, but a paved area will make some of their work easier.

The local association is already in contact with the municipality. And mayor karsten fischkal says: "this will be one of the next projects we tackle."
