The temperature is only 90 degrees this morning, which actually is quite a cooling trend from last week--mostly over 100 degrees!We are off to Strassenfest and will have pictures later today!
Here are the Strassenfest pictures!!!!!
Father Time is always at any festival that we attend, so I have quite a few pictures of him. He seems to enjoy every one of them!
This, of course, is looking toward the Arch. The flag always is draped in the center of the view.
Here is the main reason to go to the Strassenfest:
Now this is the man who did the actual cooking of our potato pancakes.
And here they are, in all their glorious potato-ness. We, of course, had plenty of condiments: horseradish sauce, butter, apple sauce, sour cream, salt and pepper.
In addition, one of the most important items to go with a potato pancake at a German Strassenfest is a good cold German Beer!
I don't think that I am forgetting any but will consider this longer! We love condiments!
Now this is the part where we are leaving the festival. Note: the sign did say $10.00 when we arrived and it had dropped down to $5.00 at our departure time!
I asked the keeper of the lot if we could get our $5.00 back, which we clearly overpaid, but was denied.
No surprise there, but it never hurts to ask!!!!!
(The highest we have seen parking prices was $20.00!)
