Gäubodenvolksfest in Straubing, the Little Brother of Oktoberfest

Volksfest! Festivals anywhere during summer time in Bavaria! This is one thing I love in Bayern, Germany. There are a lot of festivals going on especially during summer time!

One of the festivals I visited was the Gäubodenvolksfest in Straubing. It is called as the Little Brother of Oktoberfest because it is the second largest one in Bavaria. The festival is held every year in the middle of August and lasts 11 days. The festival is celebrated by the whole city as a “fifth season”, and many companies are closed down during this time.

This year’s festival will take place on August 10-20, 2012. Two sleeps more to go and let’s party again!

Some of the images I took during our trip  last August 2009. I love Germany! I love Bavaria!

You can see a lot of people wearing the traditional Bavarian costumes called the Trachten and Dirndl during the festival. I  want to buy one next time.
My favorite ride everytime I go to a festival, the Ferris Wheel ride. This was my first visit in Gaeubodenvolksfest.
