Happenings which might interest petti-enthusiasts
Golden Oldies Festival: Every July, Wettenberg, Germany (close to Giessen) turns the wheel back to the 50's. Event information and a map is available at www.wettenberg.de. (Wettenberg is in central Germany.)
Septembers, a similar event is held at Goodwood, in Southern England. The venue is a bit different, as the primary focus is vintage motorcars,
but petticoat aficionados take advantage by wearing their finest!
Rolling Oldies turn back the clock in Alpbachtal (Austria)
By John Leo-Moberg
Petticoats, the roaring of engines and a whole lot of nostalgia: in Reith im Alpbachtal, fans of the 50s, 60s and 70s are about to gather at the event "Rolling Oldies" in May to listen to live music from the time during a long weekend.
Period cars, clothes and dreams of James Dean are all welcome as it is not only the music bringing the participants back to the glorious time of Rock ‘n’ Roll. Live bands will play all night long, to resurrect the "good old" music. One of the most anticipated bands is the "Beatles Coverband", who are going to tell the audience what all they really need is.
Fireworks, shows, dance and contests will all go on next to the music, including the popular "Miss Petticoat" contest. Old items such as LP record players and tulip lamps will also be available for purchase.
Romantic walks in the alps and Boogie-Woogie dance shows will top off the week end.
The events begin on Thursday the 17th of May (2012) and end on Sunday the 20th of May.
Ticket prices, if booked in advance: 5 Euro for Friday and 5 Euro for Saturday.
(Romance ride: 29 Euro, registration required)
Ticket prices, if bought on location: 7 Euro for Friday and 7 Euro for Saturday.
