Kinderfasching

This weekend we went to Kinderfasching. Fasching (carnival) parties in Germany occur each year just before lent. They are special events for celebrating the short winter days. Kinderfasching is a fasching party just for kids. There are also Seniorfasching, Adultfasching , Churchfasching and many other types of Fasching parties.
Many Fashing parties are held in gyms or large halls. The lights are on and the guests sit at tables and enjoy the party.
At Kinderfasching there are usually special areas right up front for kids; to watch the show, dance, and play.


Both kids and adults wear costumes.

 Food and drinks are available.

 
This Fasching party started with all the performers marching through the hall and onto the stage. Once on stage there was singing of the club song and words of welcome.

There was a keyboard player to play music during the entering and exiting of performers, during the games and for the club song.


There were dance performances.

In between the dance performances there were lots of fun games and activities for kids. They played musical chairs, played with balloons, and did traditional Fasching dances. Fliegerlied is a traditional Fasching song enjoyed by young and old. The lyrics are just fun;

And I fly, fly, fly like an aviator
I'm so strong, strong, strong like a tiger
And so big, big, big like a giraffe
So tall, oh, oh, oh
And I jump, jump, jump again and again
And I swim, swim, swim over to you
And I take, take, take you by the hand,
'cause I like you*
And I say
Today is such a beautiful day
La-la-la-la-la

Fasching is a very fun time of year in Germany! If you would like to learn more about Carnival in Germany click Fasching on the right-hand side of the blog under German Living Topics.
