We went to the 50th annual New Braunfels Wurstfest tonight - I guess this guy is a German version of Dionysus!
We scurried in before 7PM so we could get in free on the first night of the fair. We were hungry so we headed right for the marketplatz to see what goodies there were...
More food on a stick than is right to report.
Seriously - on a stick -
Yes, the stick is run through the bun into the brat.
The marketplatz was jammed with people, most of whom seemed to be carrying around pitchers of beer in one hand, and some sort of meat on a stick in the other.
For dessert, corn on the cob... on a stick! See that cup? It was FULL of butter. The corn rolls around in it until it's pulled, dripping for your pleasure.
There were a few rides
but we weren't really in the mood.
It's a cute little festival. We had fun - glad we saw it. Wasn't much for the kids, so we were lucky we just had Little K with us.
There was some oompa playing as we walked around, but the tent with the band was really crowded, so after an hour or so, we made our exit.
New Braunfels is a fun little town, and not hard to get to from Cibolo. We'll be back up there again soon!
