Fasching 2019 in Omaha

The Fasching event was suitable for all ages—with outstanding food (such as frikadeller, which is a German meatball), dancing, laughter, and music by the Barry Boyce Polka Band to bring the community together
The night started with a welcome dinner, followed by various entertainment acts. At one point, the German-American Society’s Das Männerballett (male ballet) performed a "Polonaise" dance with grown men dressed up in ballerina outfits. The men danced around and gave everyone in the audience a good laugh.
There was also a costume contest. Men, women, couples, and kids dressed up as werewolves, princesses, Dr. Seuss characters, and more. It was like Halloween for German-Americans in February.
