Had to be canceled even completely.
"It will be made up for next year!", the organizations involved assured. After bravely holding out, the event was ended early at noon due to the rising wind. The children’s and young people’s flea market, which was held at the same time and was otherwise very popular, was also only very limited in activity this time.
