Saturday at German Fest was an action packed day. Saturday is parade day and it was great to just stand under a shade tree with the lake breeze, watching all the groups parade past. I checked out some of the shops. And on the left you can see that Willy of the Sandlers was busy with his beautiful mouthblown glassware. He truly has some one of a kind items. He and his wife, Regina, took time with each customer and proud to explain how these lovely items are made.
I went to see an old favorite, the Johnny Hoffmann band. I was happy to see that Rick's (he plays the sax) daughter did a few songs with Kevin, their lead singer. This band has been around a long time, but always brings new life to the band. Each musical selection was perfect, these guys just don't make mistakes. They will always be one of my favorites and it just would not be German Fest without them!!!
We started our day with our traditional Saturday morning visit to the Konditorei and had some lovely tortes. The best part is when old friends come by and we can catch up on what has been happening in their lives since we last saw them.
Take a look at the slide show below. One of my favorites is the guys with the "prost" sunglasses.
