Carnival ball for the over-50s

Thursday 16 February

In Ganzegat, the carnival opened on Thursday 16 February in Jantine's 'canteen' at the Couwenbergh with a ball for people over 50, called the 'Aauwfiepenbal' in the announcements. 

With the slow disappearance of the dialect, an 'aauwfiep' is quickly associated with someone who is 'aauwd' (old). However, the designation 'aauwfiep' can apply to someone from a young age. You don't necessarily have to be old to be known as a joker, chatterbox, chatterbox, saver or joker. These are just a few synonyms of the word 'aauwfiep'.

The cooperation between the KBO and the Stichting Organisatie Carnaval Ganzegat has led to the organisation of an 'Aauwfiepenbal' on 16 February. The ball is meant for all 50-plussers in Ganzegat and will start at 8pm. Performers will include chatterbox Rien Bekkers. Rien is a former Jester hood winner in Helmond and was also a regular in the barrel in Ganzegat. The Souvenirs and Henk van Beek complete the programme. In between, there will be plenty of opportunity to try your hand at a foxtrot or waltz. A prize will be available for the most beautifully dressed visitor. 

Tickets for this entertaining evening cost €5.00. That includes a cup of coffee or tea upon entry and snacks during the evening. The entry ticket is also the ticket for the otherwise free raffle. Tickets are on sale at Snoeperij Jantje, the Couwenbergh and on the evening itself at the box office.
