This Friday there’s something fun going on at Western Oregon University:
Fasching? What’s that? Well, it’s an important season of the German year where everyone dresses up as something (kind of like your Halloween), eats Krapfen (deep fried dough rolls usually with jelly in the middle), and celebrates. You might know it as a version of Carneval.
This year, WOU has its very first Faschingsball on Friday, March 4 from 8-11pm, in the Werner University Center, with plenty of free parking right across the street.
Tickets are $5 for one or $8 for a couple. Refreshments, a fabulous DJ, a fortune teller and a photographer will be there to help make this a fabulous event. Costumes and masks are encouraged but not required.
Sounds like fun!

So have fun if you can make it there and “Helau!!” and “Alaaf!!” (this is how we greet each other during that season).
Have a great week,
