The new sweet and ice cream booth from

Claudia Boos from Klingenberg celebrated

its première at this year’s Michelstadt


The 6 metre long construction was built by

the Dietz firm according to the wishes of the

showman firm, and the ideas of Claudia’s

husband, Wolfgang Boos. The result is

quite impressive; the upbeat painting

perfectly harmonises with the neon lighting

(from the Ilmenau ILM firm). The sales booth

was completed only a couple of days before

the opening of the Bienenmarkt, from

where it travelled on to events in Speyer and


By the way, the previous model, also built

by Dietz as a skip container (6 m) in 2002,

is also still touring.

William Fischer (3. f. l.)

with his life partner, Tina Kalwa,

was honoured by Lord Mayor

Dirk Elbers (r.) and President

Lothar Inden in Düsseldorf

As is tradition, on the

first Monday of the

Düsseldorf Fair, one of

most exceptional

showmen participants

is chosen by the organiser

to be specially

honoured for his or

her service to the

event. This time the

chosen candidate was

William Fischer.

In the Düsseldorf city

hall, the Lord Mayor

Dirk Elbers presented William “Menzie” Fischer

this honorary award. With his Giant Slide, “Toboggan”,

William Fischer has thrilled the visitors

with a special show at the Rheinwiesen for years.

His slick announcements over the microphone

accompany his guests on their way up on the

conveyor belt, with young and old enjoying the

little accidents of those braving the attraction,

which is hardly without (harmless) falls and hilarious

contortions. This still provides much fun to

all participants over and over again. In addition

to the Lord Mayor and the St. Sebastians, William

Fischer also explicitly thanked his life partner

Tina Kalwa after the ceremony.
