Hi Everyone,
We decided to try and do a proper Cologne Style Carnival here in Hong Kong to celebrate the 11/11th - concurrently with the start of the 'Jecke Zeit' at the Alter Markt in Koeln at 11:11 (i.e. 18:11 here in HK).

We hope that at least some of you come also with costumes (maybe change there in the restroom). We are organizing Frueh Koelsch and Koelsche Musik (Yes - all that stuff like 'Leev Marie' and 'Jeck Yeah'). The Mainz and Duesseldorf Diaspora are also welcome, and upon request we will even play songs like 'Im Schatten des Domes' :)

The goal is to have a great time singing and drinking and showing our HK and international colleagues what a wonderful piece of culture the Rheinische Karneval is and how different it is to Oktoberfest and the general 'Fasching'.

As in Cologne - kids are welcome, but parents are responsible for them.
