Little snow whites, ballerinas, indians, gardeners, floats and sailors – the mottos of the numerous groups were as colorful as the costumes again this year. The children’s train has long been an integral part of the free push – and this time, too, some spectators did not want to miss the spectacle. 57 groups and seven music bands took part in the children’s parade through kronach on tuesday. More than 1900 participants from the entire district were involved, from the world of associations and kindergartens.
For the still acting guardian king bernd korb it was the first time to organize such a rough train: "it was a couple of days of work, but it was a lot of fun." The train was also visibly enjoyable for all participants. Even the rain that came briefly during the train could not dampen the good mood among the children and young people.
The groups met in front of the town hall as early as 11 a.M. In order to line up properly – no easy task with almost 2,000 people. "We have laid out boards with numbers on the floor so that everyone knows where they stand", explains korb.
