It's simply the most magical way to the mountains...

Fancy being part of Europe’s silliest, daftest and most fun car rally, spanning 4 countries in a mad-cap two day gad-about? Do you yearn for the open road and long to be part of a lawless gang of miscreants with one sole purpose of fun on their minds? Do you dream of blue skies and long motorways? Are you happy to live off paprika crisps and service station Haribo for two days straight!? If the answer to all those questions is yes, then we've got just the ticket…

Roll up, roll up, for the murky myth of Hans Von Hofen's Freakadelic Circus! Founded by the mysterious Hans Von Hofen (thought to be descended from the Hofen clan - the first known settlers in this magical corner of the Alps), the SB freaky circus was a huge hit across Europe and beyond for decades. Bearded ladies? Check. A couple of Vietnamese acrobats? You betcha. A tiger that can balance a fridge on it's nose? Obvs! 

Legions of curious visitors queued up from Salzburg to Sardinia to witness the spectacle of Han's performers, and tales spread far and wide about the amazing circus, with many travelling to Mayrhofen during the off season in the hope of catching a glimpse of some of the carnival, many of whom stayed in the 'hof before hitting the road again (some say this contributed to the weird and wonderful atmosphere still prevalent across Mayrhofen today, and also may explain why a certain number of teenage girls at the local sixth form are sporting some seriously lush sideburns.) 

However one day Han's carnival was caught up in a freak storm that ripped his famous circus tent to shreds. The animals escaped and the performers were bereft of a home and a trade, and scattered into various corners of the continent to seek out anonymity and sanctuary... Except the acrobats who were a huge hit on Britain's Got Talent.

Now for 2017, Snowbombing is looking to find the elusive Hans Von Hofen, and bring together the disparate strands of his travelling freak show for one last mission to the mountains, one last hurrah, and one last cavalcade of carnival inspired revelry en route to the mountains before an almighty bash once the hallowed peaks of Mayrhofen are in sight. Will you join this band of rogues, this afflicted gang of miscreants, this tortured but talented gaggle of souls driving in unison to one sacred goal? Roll up, roll up... The circus is about to begin!

Hans' freaky Road Trip will be setting off from our UK hub on the morning of 1st April 2017 (but this ain't no fools day, sucker), before setting off on one heck of an adventure across Europe. Expect ridiculous pit stops, a fantastically funny ferry ride, a Saturday night stopover featuring the likes of The Dance-Off and Bongo's Bingo, finishing with a hero's reception and one hell of a welcome party on the Mayrhofen High St. on Sunday night... What a way to start the greatest week of your year! Where will the circus stop, we hear you cry? Well, that information is coming VERY soon. So curl up those moustaches, join an acrobatic workshop and start planning your outfit, as Hans' Freakadelic Circus is alive!!!
