Wittgenstein kicks off the summer vacation with a huge pool party

Bad Berleburg / Wittgenstein.
There should be a lot of fun in and out of the water. Much has been planned for the holiday kick-off party and there is a “plan B” in case it rains.

On holiday – in cool water: The great holiday starts with a great party at the KNAX pool in Rothaarbad in Bad Berleburg – for all the municipalities of Wittgenstein. For the first time since 2019, the six weeks without school lessons start right again. “We want to give all students a great start to their holidays. And make sure the big break can happen in any case, ”Julia Bade from Bad Berleburg’s municipal youth welfare office explained during a presentation of the program. Because the people in charge issued “a guarantee of nice weather”.

Free admission for anyone under 18 years of age

If the beginning of the holiday season on Friday 24 June from 11am to 6pm is rainy, the party will take place in the indoor pool. “Of course we hope we can be in the outdoor pool, but that way we definitely have plan B in our pockets,” said Julia Bade significantly.

The municipal youth care centers in Bad Berleburg and Bad Laasphe, open work for children and young people in Erndtebrück, the local DLRG group in Bad Berleburg and Sparkasse Wittgenstein have jointly developed a large program (see information box). Best of all, admission to the pool party is free for all children and young people up to 18 years of age.

This is what young people expect

In addition, the young guests will enjoy the KNAX competition, bouncy castle, bison rodeo, goal wall and, of course, music. The Red Cross youth of the local association DRC in Bad Berleburg are also involved in the medical service “ashore” – in the water the local DLRG group in Bad Berleburg has control. “I’m glad to have you by our side at such a big event,” said Sandra Janson from the Bad Berleburg Youth Development Association. The responsible have no doubts that the great event will be a success, not only because of the “bad weather solution”. “Of course we hope the weather will be great – but it’s safe to say,” explained Sandra Janson. Like her, all the organizers learned lessons from the past when the pool party literally collapsed a few years ago.

The only variable is the weather

So the only variable is the weather, which this time ultimately has a limited impact on the big event. Because there are no limits – good news after the pool party had to be canceled twice recently due to Corona. “Pool party is unlimited due to Corona guidelines. Wearing a face mask at the event is voluntary, Manuel Spies explained. The anticipation of the pool party was also felt in the operations manager of Rothaarbad – and therefore he immediately issued a “nice weather guarantee”: “We provide infrastructure both inside and outside, with free admission and a constant water temperature of 26 degrees Celsius in the outdoor area of ​​the pool. So no one really has to get cold. “
