Wurstfest 2014, y'all! We went on a Saturday, which is always insane. We've got to quit going on the weekends, FAR too many people. Still, the weather was perfect and we had a great time. They opened a whole new area this year, which made it way bigger! More shops and food and a new stage. Very cool!
We went with my sister and her man Casey, and met my dad and Brendon's little brother AJ there. It's more fun with more people!
My newest dirndl deserves a post of it's own, which it will get. In typical Marie fashion, I finished it the night before. It was a loooong process, but I am very happy with it!
This is a blurry photo, but evidence that Brendon lost the slide race. Those long arms up in the air probably didn't help.
The original food trailer! But really, this trailer has been around forever. Long before food trailers were a thing. And it makes the best funnel cakes ever!
The new stage area is so lovely. It's between historic buildings and the river, definitely my favorite of all the stages! This guy was playing the digital accordion and was fantastic! The next picture is of him playing "sheet music".
He's wearing a sheet. HA! So punny. But really, he was wearing a sheet and still killed it on the accordion. He's got everything memorized!
It was a good time, as always. I think it's one of my favorite events of the year. And somehow this year we managed to not see a single person we knew. That has never happened! Every year we see people we grew up with, but this year, nope. I don't know whether we really knew no one there or if it was just so busy we didn't come across anyone. Regardless, I'm not mad about it.
Thanks for the good times as always Wurstfest! If you're in the area, you've still got a week to go, so go go go!
