Saturday evening there will also be a talent show for the town’s youth to show what they can do from 5pm until 7pm.  The show is aptly named “Kickfactor: … and what can you do?”

And it was Nadine’s taste in music that influenced the next act.  Singer Anjuschka Uher sang the winning title from the 2012 Eurovision Song Contest: “Euphoria”.  Later it was the turn of Stierstadt’s firebrigade band to play one last time for Christina before her farewell speech. [Read more…]
