Kaiserslautern will say goodbye to the cold winter season and welcome spring a few days prior to the official beginning of spring. The advertising association “Kaiser in Lautern” will offer, in cooperation with the City of Kaiserslautern, street musicians, spring flowers and a diversified program with Sunday shopping.
“Chasing away the winter and bursting into bloom” is the city’s motto for this event, which takes place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and 1 to 6 p.m. Sunday.
An Easter market with vendor booths will be set up in front of Stiftskirche. There, visitors can buy unique jewelry, springtime decorations, caps and candy and artisans will show off their skills. Musicians and marching bands will also entertain the audience in the streets.
Next to the primrose pyramid set up on Altenhof, Miss Kaiserslautern, Sarah Lolagar, will hand out 2,000 primroses.
The Gartenschau and the Japanese Garden will inform visitors at their information stands. The Kaiserslautern Zoo will also be present with a petting zoo. The rabbit breeding association will present live Easter rabbits on Schillerplatz.
Children can enjoy face painting on Riesenstrasse, and a jumping castle on Fackelstrasse. A barefoot path and a fun mobile can be found on Stiftsplatz. A balloon artist will create fantastic figures, and the Kaiserslautern Easter bunny will make its appearance on both days.
The members of the dance club Rot-Weiss will present their sports and invite visitors to join in.
Stores that are members of “Kaiser in Lautern” will have special offers and bargains for customers.
“Again this year, the program is very diverse and inventive,” said Alexander Hess, manager of the advertising association and chief of the project office for city events. “We will offer a colorful mix of entertainment, information and shopping fun at our spring market ‘Lautern bursts into bloom.’”
