Velburg in the Oberpfalz Celebrates its 600th Foundtion Anniversary

Velburg, a town in the Oberpfalz or Upper Palatinate in Bavaria, Germany celebrates its 600th Foundation Anniversary. It was a three-day free program from June 25-27, 2010. We witnessed the historical parade last June 27 which started at 2:00PM. It was truly a spectacle seeing participants of the the Festzug or festival parade wearing different and colourful costumes and dresses during the Medieval time. Around the old town were also full of festive motives varying from tents to old beer gardens, shows and a lot more.

Here are some of the photographs I took during our visit last Sunday.

Horsemen from the nearby towns and villages also attended the parade.
