Today was the harvest festival in my particular rural village turned suburb of Bremen. German harvest festivals consist of a parade with floats decorated by local clubs and organisations, a religious service and a big party with dancing, drinking and merrymaking. Usually, there’s carousel for the kids as well.
This year, the parade passed through my street, so I got to wave at the floats and take a few photos. Unfortunately, the parade was quicker than expected, so I missed the riders, the marching band and the harvest crown, which is always on the first float along with the Lutheran pastor. But I still saw the majority of the floats and groups.
So, without further ado, have some photos behind the cut:
