The colorful program, which the people in charge around EKG president horst amon had once again come up with, made sure of that.
At 20.11 o’clock it hit true to the EKG motto chosen this time "circus" manege frei. After the ceremonial entrance with fortune-tellers, elephants and tightrope walkers, the children’s prince and princess wilma and fabian wished the numerous guests an entertaining evening and lots of fun with music and performances.
"Agadoo doo doo", it sounded from the loudspeakers when the EKG children’s dance group put their feet on the parquet and received the applause they deserved for their successful choreography.

Samba group from bamberg
The hall shook with the two performances of the inspiring samba group "bateria quem e" from bamberg. "Are we really in ebensfeld or maybe at the copacabana"?, many a guest may have asked themselves in view of the fiery atmosphere. The men and women around albert fuchs, who conducted the samba crew in a lively, sometimes even ecstatic manner, created an uproar of excitement. Fuchs was even able to spontaneously mix the loud applause of the audience acoustically with the instrumental sounds of his troupe. "We live the sambamusik", fuchs says laughing during the interview.
