Friday, a day where every Lohrite waited in anticipation. It was the beginning of the 66th Spessartwoche or Beer fest, to be held for a week!!
Everybody gathered at the Schlossplatz where the procession with the barrel of beer was to begin.
The mayor along with his wife shaking a leg or two as the brass band performs.
Colorful uniforms, hats and feathers.
Ladies dressed in the traditional German dress....the dirndl
The beer tent which seats around 4500 people.
And finally the less than half filled mug of beer.....:D
Keep watching for this space for more shots from the Spessartwoche this coming week..:)
