Beer Tents in Gaeubodenvolksfest in Straubing

Yesterday was such a very wonderful and enjoyable day. We went for the first time in Straubing, a city in Upper Bavaria to witness Gaeubodenvolksfest. This is public festival held every year in Straubing and was considered to be the second largest festival next to Oktoberfest or October Festival. If I am not mistaken, there are around six beer tents in this festival. Festivals in Germany are always accompanied with beer drinking. I don’t know how many people were drunk during this celebration which will last until tomorrow. I guess some people are already addicted to alcohol drinking that they need to be admitted to drug rehab center.

Yesterday we also heard the Bavarian Red Cross siren a lot of times. One time their ambulance parked near to us and we saw that they convinced this man to go with them because he was already very drunk. He even lost his sleepers as I saw his naked feet. This can be very scary sometimes because I already heard one time in the news that a person was dead due to too much alcohol in his body.

Festivals are always good to enjoy and have fun but you must know your limit. Drinking too much is not good. This can even lead to alcohol addiction. Here is photo taken in one of the beer tents during the Gaeubodenvolksfest. I will give you more information about this famous festival in my next post. For now I have to sign-off to visit a US government site. Have a great week ahead!
