This last Sunday, sister and I wandered down to our river-front park to celebrate this year's Germanfest. Always something I enjoy, I usually have to drag others with me. Not this year! She was just as excited! I ate cheesecake and poked around at the booths. (We have a sister city in Germany). There were lots of beautiful pictures! There were also crafts for the kids, tables of authentic food, a wonderful band and lots of lederhosen! Older couples polka-ed while the younger generation tried to keep up. Our own local German brewer tapped the first keg of Oktoberfest and everyone cheered! It was a nice cool afternoon, with the German flags fluttering behind the band. What a fun event! And everyone looks vaguely familiar. I guess German genes are strong ones!

  1. there's a city called Helen, Georgia, that is German year round. I've had lots of fun times there!
