When we arrived at the backside of the Wurstfest grounds, we pulled out our Wurstfest tickets and entered through Gate #3. To our left was a small tent with a band playing oom-pah-pah music and they had the crowd singing "Ein, Zwei, Gzuffa!" a German beer-drinking song. Welcome to Wurstfest.
We spent an hour walking through the Marktplatz and Festhalle checking out food offerings, souvenirs and people. People watching provided much entertainment, especially those in costume, i.e., a black and white cow, people with hats of all sizes and types, dirndls and lederhosen, and assorted other unique looks.
Here are pictures of some of the things we saw:
|Mural on the outside of the Festhalle.|
|Eating wurst (sausage).|
Fried green pickles? We even saw fried Kool Aid. How do they do that??
With so many choices of food, we finally settled on turkey Reuben sandwiches. We took them into the Festhalle where we ate them with entertainment provided by a very talented German band and people polka-ing on the super-sized dance floor.
|What the ....?|
|Oh, I see.|
|She's ready for the Chicken Dance!|
|I asked if I could take their photo...too cute!|
