Fasching (Masquerade Ball) 2009

Dayton Liederkranz-Turner will celebrate Fasching with a Masquerade Ball on Saturday, February 21, 2009 from 7:30 - 11:30pm. Alte Kamaraden will provide our music entertainment for the evening. The majority of those attending come in costumes of all kinds with a parade of costumes and prizes.

** Wear a costume and get $1 off at the door! Costume Parade for the Prince & Princess at 8:15 Prizes awarded for Most Original, Best Single, Best Couple, and Best Group. **Food & beverages will be available for purchase. The Prinz and Prinzessin preside over the ceremonies and welcome everyone to fun.

Fasching, Fasnacht, and Karneval all describe a season of celebration in Germany and in Catholic countries. This pre-Lenten period is celebrated with parades, masks, costumes, food, drink and all kinds of tomfoolery. It is a time of the "fool" who, from behind his/her mask, can say and do outrageous things with impunity.
