Hello September! Wow, we are already in the middle of the month! Looks like time passes-by so quick now. Over three months more and holiday season will be here! Don’t worry about it yet. Let us just enjoy the current season.
Summer is over now in our place and I miss a lot of festivals during this time of the year. Due to busy schedules and that I am not really in a good condition right now, I also cannot go somewhere to watch and enjoy the many festivals that are going on in and around the nearby towns and cities.
One thing I miss last weekend was the Tillyfest. It is a yearly celebrated that takes place around the second weekend of September. The festival is not really a big one like the famous Oktoberfest but it is worth to visit. If you love history and want to go back in time, this is one way of doing it, witnessing this event.
One thing I love when I go there is watching the parade on Sunday. Seeing the participants with their medieval costumes, colorful dresses, decorated floats and the live bands and musical groups, are also the ones who are making the event very special. Seeing them play the old musical instruments and modern ones like a guitar called technic 1200, you will surely enjoy it. There are also groups of musicians who play drums, banjo, trumpets (like what you see in the photo here), cymbals, guitars and what else?
Witnessing historic festivals like Tillyfest is really fun and entertaining. If you are visiting Germany next time and you are around the area during this time, why not check it by yourself?
