A collection of Augsburg Plärrer photos.
It's a mini-Oktoberfest in a city near Munich.
My assistant and GF, Bec, at the Augsburg Plärrer.
A friend of our takes aim at one of the shooting galleries. At this one you shoot various object and they move about; shoot a cowboy at a piano and he starts to play, for example. Great fun.
One of the band members has sax in the middle of the crowd.
At these stands you can buy lottery tickets and win stuffed dolls and such. I love it how the German word for "lottery tickets" is lose!
No prizes for guessing what kind of snack can found underneath this fella’s face….Hmmmm, that’s right, delicious corn on the cob.
There’s always a Ferris wheel at the Augsburg Plärrer!
That’s me on the right with a bunch of likely suspects inside the Schaller tent. ~
And me again here, seemingly with a good grip on things.
I went on this carousel once, but probably never again. It’s scarier than it looks – I thought I was going to fly right out of the thing!
Another ride at the Augsburg Plärrer.
This was part of the opening parade for the Herbst (Autumn) Plärrer. In the sidecar sits a mannequin of Bavaria’s favourite king, Ludwig II.
Behind the scenes. These sticks of fruit get dipped in chocolate and sold
as a sweet snack. Pic: Augschburger
Tasty trash? A waste disposal unit at the Augsburg Plärrer.
Outside the Schaller tent by day….
…and by night. Uh oh, the sign’s changed.
Enter the mysterious world of cinema…..One of the more memorable attractions at the Plärrer.
Anyone else scared of clowns or is it just me?
To beer or not to beer? Who doesn’t want it, that is the question.
the lederhosen lads – taking part in the opening parade for the Augsburg Plärrer.
A beer cart makes its way down Augsburg’s main street, Maximilian Strasse
as part of the opening parade.
Musicians taking part in the Plärrer parade.
Fish on a stick and a giant pretzel (Stekerlfisch und Breze) a winning culinary
combination at Augsburg’s twice-yearly folk fest.
The Plärrer looks amazing at night with thousands of coloured bulbs lighting up the night.
Vintage cars are also part of the parade. This is a cute little BMW Isetta.
There are usually fireworks on the two Friday nights of each Plärrer.
More night lights at the Plärrer.
Sick of dancing on the benches? Have an arm wrestle instead!
A few friends of our messing about at the Augsburg Plärrer.
A similar ride in motion..I wouldn't fancy being flung around like that after
a few beers! Pic: Augschburger
It’s German for "See ya next time!"
