A weekend of fun for everyone at the station

This weekend (8th-10th August, 2014) sees an unusual and exciting event take place at Oberursel’s station.  As part of the Orscheler Sommer events, local residents, clubs and companies have got together to organise a weekend to “play and get to know each other”.

Already, three lorry loads of sand have been delivered to make a temporary sand pit for children to play in.

The fun starts on Friday when model of the station is going to be made using the sand.  In the afternoon from 3pm onwards there will be storytelling, boule, petanque, games in the sand, a treasure hunt to take part in, and birds of prey to see.  An outdoor chess board will also be there to play on.

At 6pm the Eastend Jazzband will be giving a concert, followed at 8.30pm by the celtic band “Flahulach” who will be playing “Traditional Music from the Windy Northwest”.

Saturday starts at 10am with games int he sand, board games, chess, music, and storytelling.  A disco for children is being organised at 3pm, with dancing for everyone else in the evening at 7pm.

At 7.30pm the music is being provided by “Toms & Jerries”, with open-air cinema at 9.30pm showing the film “Wadjda”.

On Sunday breakfast “Frühschoppen” will be at 10am, with the last chance to play in the sand before the event comes to a close at 4pm.

Entry – including the film and concerts – is free.  Cold drinks and food will be available, but anyone who wants to bring their own to put on the barbeque is welcome to do so.  Cake and salad donations are welcome.

Parents should note that they remain responsible for their children at all times.
