The catch-up date for the because of Sturms failed Mainzer Rosenmontagszug is certain: On May 8, a Sunday (Mother's Day!), And exactly three months after the actual date and exactly two months before the 200th anniversary of Rheinhessen, will be back on the streets of Mainz celebrated. This was announced by the Mainz Carnival Association (MCV) on Friday in a short-term press conference.
However, this is expressly not a belated Rosenmontagszug. After all, carnival is long gone. According to MCV President Richard Wagner, the train should be something "completely new" rather than a traditional Rose Monday procession.
And so unexpectedly Rheinhessen comes to (own) train! In view of the 200th anniversary of the Rose Monday train is a Rheinhessenzug with participants in traditional uniforms and historical costumes. The move is more regional - and smaller, because not all motive cars are still up to date. Fortunately, this does not apply to the Rheinhessen motive trolley, which is so unexpectedly in the spotlight or will roll. Of course, there are also Mainz and Rheinhessen Garden and clubs. Until 22 o'clock there is also on Schillerplatz an entertaining stage program with Rheinhessen reference. The organizers are hoping for a colorful and happy parade in the middle of spring. Whether it is called "Helau" or maybe a new Rheinhessen cheers, is still open. Now it is time to clarify the organizational details. One thing is certain: on the 8th of May, all Rheinhessen should register in the calendar today ... (DiR)
