2008 German Fest started Thursday

The 2008 German Fest started last night (Thursday) and they had a great opening day. Again I was busy taking lots of pictures and if you click on the link HERE it will take you to the Webshots album for German Fest Thursday pictures. If there is a favorite picture that you like on Webshots, click on the Full size button (on the upper-right of the screen) and then right click to download the picture. There are also pictures of the German Entertainers that got a tour of Milwaukee & a few pictures in front of the new Harley museum.

We were lucky enough to be invited to a friend's Retirement party (see other posting on this blog) that was held at the VIP in the Harley area. I was a great view from on top of the Harley VIP. The Schmalzler were entertaining us on the Harley stage and Anton aus Tirol had a great show there as well. Anton aus Tirol has been to German Fest in the past, but he was with the then Tiroler Spatzen.

Edith Prock filled up the seats at the Miller stage and many of her fans were happy to see her return to German Fest this year. She has brought several new songs with her, but she still does some of everyone's old favorites. A new band this year are Biba & the Butzemaenner. They promise to be a very lively group that will be popular with the younger set. The Sandlers have returned to German Fest this year with several new musicians, but Peter is still there playing his Harmonica with gusto.
