Vernissage for the opening of the exhibition “Princesses dresses”.
with gallery talk about the history of the Geisa carnival

Contemporary witnesses and all interested parties are invited to the informal discussion.
This event, organized by the sponsoring association in cooperation with the Geisa Carnival Association, is intended to recall how difficult it was, for example, to obtain beautiful fabrics for a princess dress in GDR times. Or how the secret procedure of the GHCC was to find a suitable princess.

First dress arrived
The 1st princess dress has already been delivered to the ANNELIESE DESCHAUER Gallery, it was made by the princess in 1976. It is made of delicate perlon fabric, with embroidery and smocked sleeves. The dress is from Princess Margit I. vom Rainfels, who at that time held the foolish regency with Prince Michael I. vom Oberrain.

Historical carnival newspapers
There is also an interesting exhibition of historical carnival newspapers of Geisa-Hinkelshagen.

Carnival songs sound
Since the new foolish carnival season has just been reopened, Geisa carnival songs will of course be heard that evening as well.
