Landstuhl will hold its annual Sickingen August market today through Monday.
Mayor Klaus Grumer will officially open the event at 4:30 p.m. today. The Landstuhl Brass Orchestra will present a concert at 4 p.m. prior to the opening at Neuen Markt.
Tonight around 10 p.m., an opening fireworks display will be lit from Nanstein Castle. Like in recent years, a local group called Heimatfreunde Landstuhl with support of the market vendors and ride owners will be responsible for the fireworks.
The August market will offer a diversified entertaining program. Rides of all kinds, raffles, snack stands offering a variety of culinary specialties, and a vendors’ market in front of Stadthalle and on Lothar-Sander-Platz will be available to lure visitors.
Monday will be Family Day until 10 p.m. with reduced ticket prices on rides and other special offers.
On all market days, Sickingen-Bus, a bus shuttle transporting people within Landstuhl, will start service at 5 a.m. today and Monday, at 8 a.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. Sunday. The last trip each day will be offered at 11 p.m.
