In New Orleans, it is called “Mardi Gras”. In Rio de Janeiro, it is called “Carnival”. In the city of Cologne, Germany, it is called “Lachende” Regardless what you name it – the festival of Carnival is a fun filled, happy time for celebration.
Over sixty Peddinghaus friends gathered at the Kolnarena, to enjoy the sights and sounds of the “Laughing Carnival”. In attendance were industry colleagues from the Ukraine, Switzerland, Ireland, England, Germany, Spain, and the USA.
The custom at this event is to dress in costume, and join in the merriment! Providing entertainment on stage were rocking musical groups as well as side-splitting comedians to add to the festive atmosphere. The Peddinghaus group had the best seats in the house – up close to the stage to be a real “part of the action”.
A great time was had by all, and a chance for industry friends and colleagues to get together and “mix a little business and pleasure”, courtesy of Peddinghaus.
