In all shapes and colors

The fact that this year on 3. October for the "kurbis in the park" festival the autumn had abruptly stopped, was not so right in the sense of nelly doppmann. The chairwoman of the horticultural and local conservation association presseck pointed out at the opening after the 11 o’clock lute to the long and bright summer, even if the drought had made the gardeners and the nature to trouble.

As in 2017, the horticultural association had decided the evening before to hold the festival not in the park behind the town hall, as originally planned, but along the industriestrabe – and also accepted the offer of pastor siegfried welsch again to entertain the guests "in the church asylum paul-gerhardt-haus" to entertain.

The hall in the parish hall was again well attended, and occasionally one even had to wait for a seat. There was cucumber soup, for which margitta sesselmann had sent the cucumbers; also homemade cakes and pies and for the "salty" ones also hot sausages.

Already at the entrance of the industry trabe, next to the stands with autumn plants and bulbs, a sign with the inscription "frischa kuchla" from pressecker production was emblazoned, right in front of the ten meter long table with cucumbers in all colors and shapes, those for cooking and those just for decorating.

Behind them were other stands with gardening supplies and advice, jams, honey from losau, autumn figurines and clothing as well as spices and organic potatoes, also from the pressecker harvest.

Trombones and santa clauses

The trombone choir had made the musical start and played some more pieces afterwards. Burgermeister siegfried beyer was pleased that at least it didn’t rain. He thanked the horticultural association, which not only organizes the festival every year, but also takes care of the greenery in the upland community all year round.

And as has become tradition, after the short opening ceremony nelly doppman sent out the seven kurbis gnomes to hand out apples to the festival visitors. And in the continuous run they ruled their office, in order to fetch themselves just as fast again supply.
