The Vespa Club RheinSchalter Cologne is again organizing the Vespa Babbo in Cologne. That Scooter Center supports this great event again, of course, it's worth taking part!
And suddenly it gets loud at Zülpicher Platz, Santa Clauses (we specify: Ok, it's probably more like Santa Clauses) on scooters are honking over the rings. Did you also notice this Advent Vespa walk on St. Nicholas Day? We explain the background here: http://goo.gl/txGroz (Video: mik) #VespaBabbo

"Vespa Babbo" is the FlashMob for Nicholas! Around 100 Vespa drivers dress up for Christmas and decorate their Vespa as colorful and glittering as a Christmas tree ball. This is how the scooter drivers drive through Cologne together - along the Christmas markets and through Cologne city center.
Italian tradition: The "Babbo" is the Italian Nikolaus. The tradition of rattling through the city in Santa Claus or Nicholas costume in the run-up to Christmas is already many years old in Italy and inspires young and old spectators on the side of the road. And of course that works best on a VESPA
