Showmen* are pleased about invitation
The senior citizens' regulars' table at the Oktoberfest was once again a wonderful opportunity for former showmen* to chat about old times. Marstall hosts Siegfried and Sabine Able invited more than 50 former Wiesn employees* with a minimum age of 70 to the house box of their marquee. "Unfortunately, many of them can no longer come, but they are always very happy about the invitation," said Yvonne Heckl from the Veranstaltungsgesellschaft der Münchner Schausteller (VMS). As the oldest participant, 86-year-old Klaus Zimmermann made it to the meeting. The "Altschaustellerstammtisch" was founded back in the 1990s by former Wiesn festival director Gabriele Weishäupl, who stopped by in person this year.
