Sunday's in my city!!

It's 15 minutes to midnight and my Sunday's gonna end. What have we been upto? Well, the much talked Lohrer Festwoche(Lohr Fest week) began in our village and the entire family has been hanging out a lot over there. 
      To mark the start of the fest, we had a procession where a barrel of beer drawn by horses walked through the village distributing free beer to the crowd. There was also a traditional German dance to entertain the crowd. 

The crowd then followed the cart all the way to the River Main where a tent( similar to the October fest) has been put up. Here, you can drink beer to your hearts content along with some grill hänchen(chicken) all the while listening to a live band!!!
The children had a gala time on all the rides!! A good way to spend their pocket money...:)

I am a tired woman. I need to crash into bed right now!! I hope everybody had a wonderful sunday and a happy week to all!! By the way, I am headed to India for my home trip, so the next 5 weeks will be coming to you straight from my home land!!! And also please do not forget to visit Unknown Mami, thanks to her, we are able to travel around the world!!
