The whole village gets decorated with flowers, like this:
After paying the entry fee, you have to wear this (of course I wore a shirt with a flower on it ;) ):
A decorated fountain:
The parade is starting:
I love the horse decorations:
Young men with the flag:
Of course there's music as well:
I also have a video for you:
The cock is the symbol of the village:
"Die Erde" - "The Earth"
So, first came Vikings:
Not quite sure which Asian country this is supposed to be but very funny idea:
Some more music:
Italy - Venice:
Something especially for me! North America:
Love the tipi!
This next boat is from the Spreewald, a region in Eastern Germany which is famous for its canals - you can go paddling there or get driven around in big boats like this one:
They also gave us some of the famous Spreewald pickles. I assume these riders are supposed to be the famous Easter riders, a Catholic parade taking place every easter in the Lausitz:
More music - kids this time:
The peace sign:
And lovely flower people following - really great fun!
Of course, there also is a waggon with the smallest ones:
Matrjoschkas - Russian nesting dolls:
And a Russian bear ;)
And this was the best part, something for my brother. An UFO!
The UFO was even occupied by a little green man:
And I loved ET and Elliott!
