It all starts on Friday at 15:00. The fair and market stalls will open and invite you to browse. Art will be on offer from 6 p.m. when street chalk art will be on display in front of the hut of the Neubeckum leisure centre. The official starting signal for the town festival will be given by Mayor Michael Gerdhenrich on the event stage at 7 p.m., before the band "YourDecade" heats up the visitors with the best rock songs from the 70s, 80s and 90s.
