Coco the Wurstfest clown without his clown make-up and round red nose.
Perhaps the recent "Killer Clown" scare has affected all real clowns?

Outside Das Grosse Zelt. I reckon the crowds are really growing now, as I type this.
Hope you've enjoyed this little look at this year's Wurstfest.

As you entered Wurstfest yesterday, some of the Opas were handing out these Veterans
Day Badges. Guess I should've left them for the veterans, but I did not see what it was
until later.

Your pictures are always great, and they keep getting better. I like that, as usual, you included one of your lunch. Always makes me hungry. Looks like it was a great Wurstfest, a lot of fun. Was there a mosquito problem at all?
Good for you, getting the "Saluting America's Veterans" badge. That's a good thing to do. I'm not a Veteran, but I salute them, too.

It does look like a fun event. So were people dancing to the polka band? And the food does indeed look good.

It could well be the recent "Killer Clown" scare that made them do away with the clown.
Here´s what he used to look like:

Thanks, all.

Connie, as the evening progressed, more people got up to dance. There were a few old-timers who did dance early on when I was there,
but the young people were only starting to arrive as I was leaving.

No mosquito problems at all, Richard. The days this week have been breezy and only in the mid-60's. Fall seems to have officially arrived at last.

Hans, regarding the second floor of the Stelzenhaus, it's a restaurant and folks are seated, eating.

Today is the last day of Wurstfest. After 3:00 PM, entry is free, so there's bound to be huge crowds.

Glad to hear that the old timers were dancing -- they can be the most fun to watch. I remember years ago going to a polka festival in the Hudson Valley in New York State. There were some older (than me) folks there who had obviously been dancing the polka together for many many years and they were doing some fabulous moves!
