germanfest throwback

gfesttbt In honor of my favorite festival returning this weekend, this Throwback Thursday is devoted to German Fest! Here I am with a member of the Mardi Gras Royalty as just a wee braided Mädchen.

My family has been going to German Fest as long as I can remember; my parents actually got engaged there, so you could say that it’s our original family tradition!  Every year I love to get a big plate of spanferkel, jam out to some sweet polkas, bellow out “Ein Prosit” with the rest of the crowd, maybe take a loop on the Skyglider. This has always been the festival that felt like mine and is one of my favorite weekends of the summer (of course, it doesn’t hurt that it always falls either on or around my birthday).

I can’t wait to be there tomorrow night!
