Strange little puppet guy in the tent.

We went with some of our German friends tonight to a little local fest in Schlammersdorf (or so we thought a little local fest).  When we arrived there were spotlights beaming in the sky and busses and cars galore!  We parked out in this field with the many other hundreds of cars and walked over to the main tent.  This was about 9:00 p.m. and the band was in full swing as well as the crowd.  An empty table or bench could not be found.  People were already on the tables dancing to the tunes of the band (i.e. Sweet Home Alabama, Country Roads, and all your typical top forty fest songs).  We stayed in that tent for a bit (that's where all the pictures were taken) and then we headed to another tent just outside the WC (bathroom) outside corridor that connected the two.

Catherine, Toby and Fred (oops! guess he's mad because he forgot to wear his Lederhosen).
  This tent had no tables to sit at and seemed to be the younger crowd's hangout.  There was no band but more modern music was played via dj in this area.  It's strange because this was were the bar was located (I guess that only served liquor) but if you wanted beer you had to go to the first tent.  It made for a nice break because the tents (especially the main one with the beer) tended to get rather stuffy and smoky.

Unfortunately, this was a last minute affair for us, so we couldn't stay long but either next week or the week after that there should be a big Kirwa (another local fest) taking place either next week or the week after.  I'll be sure to post any blogs or pics if we attend that (which, hopefully we will).
