This past weekend we attended the annual Sommerfest in Stuttgart. It was SO different then what we expected. We have been to our share of Fest while living here in Germany. We always have a great time! And we did again.
This Fest was the queen of Fests. It was all about elegance and white! The downtown area was covered in white tents. The Fest tables had white linens beautifully draped on top. White lights were hanging everywhere. Some were outlining the tops of the tents. Some were along the walkways. Simply elegance of white lights. It was just a fabulous setting in which to enjoy an evening!
We began our evening a little early. People were just hanging out talking. There were many stages of music that we could listen to. We heard a couple of bands. One played Scottish and Irish music.
Here are the white tents. People just milling around enjoying the beautiful weather.
Tree lined avenue!
Around the lake, the Fest continued.
As the night approached the lights came on setting the scene of a relaxing music filled evening.
A lot of the booths had sitting areas. You sat down eat, chatted, and listened to music. Notice the white sofas? I was so scared that we would drop something!
Of course there was food involved! We nibbled on some amazing pizza. We still are trying to decide what was in the sauce. But the real pleasure was this….
roasted pork with cheese and onions. Oh the pork! So tender. So juicy. Okay I am back now. Memories!
It was a very relaxed way to spend a Friday evening with Hubby and Amazing Daughter.
Amazing Daughter snapped this one. It seemed our friends the ducks were trying to decide if they wanted to go in or not! They did.
I cannot wait until next year!
Happy Wednesday everyone!!!
