"LOCKNFESCHT" - THE PUDDLE PARTY 22 Apr 2012Location: Kronplatz, slope "Seewiese"
Time: 10 a.m.
After one year’s pause it will be staged again, this unique, unparalleled event on Kronplatz - the “Locknfescht”. This soaking wet spectacle shall mark the end of the skiing season with participants jumping into the cold water. It all started over a decade ago when a group of locals tried to cross the small pond, which forms from the melted snow in the Seewiese on Kronplatz every spring. Over the past twelve years the big puddle has grown bigger and bigger since it has been fed with additional amounts of water. The pond and the event have become famous far beyond the borders of South Tyrol. The Locknfescht is a most crazy event indeed. Cars without wheels, beds, bath tubs, sky rockets, desks, deckchairs and parasols, compositions of tyres, semi-nudes or fully uniformed daredevils as well as an abundance of rideable, slideable or rollable vehicles have all come down the slope and tried to make their way over the pond. It goes without saying that the event is always spiced up by hip music and plenty to eat and drink!
