Summer time is one of the best time to visit Germany. This is where you can find a lot of festivals from Volksfest to Weinfest, Sommerfest, Medieval festivals, Music festivals and more. Last Sunday, we went to the Volksfest, (literally translated as People’s Festival) in Neumarkt in der Oberpfalz or Neumarkt Upper Palatinate.

The weather was sunny that time or I would say, was really hot. It is better than having a rainy day. The parade started at around 2:00 PM but they already arrived in the Altstadt or Old City of Neumarkt at around 2:30 PM. According to the newspaper last Monday, it was participated by 103 groups.

The parade was really very entertaining. There were a lot of live bands, musicians and group of participants who were playing different music. I love listening to music and I would say, I am a musician’s friend in terms of seeing parades and celebrations like this. There were various floats and horse carriages with different motives, styles and decorations.
After the parade, we went to the festival ground to enjoy the carnival rides. Tasting German beers and local delicacies is also a must when visiting festivals like this in Germany. If you are around the area, the celebration is still going on until August 18, 2014. Cheers!
