We stayed at our very first “Jellystone” campground here, something we never anticipated doing, not having children or grand-children yet in tow.  But, this location is within walking distance of the Bavarian Festival, in full swing this weekend. So we went with that flow…3625413522_4ce36daec1_m

The campground was also within walking distance of Bronner’s  CHRISTmas Wonderland.  Almost indescribable.  We started our tour there in the Silent Night Memorial Chapel, a replica of the  chapel in Oberndorf, Austria, where Stille Nacht, was first composed/performed.

We could have gotten lost in the huge store complex, but our dancing feet needed to get to the Bavarian Festival a few miles down the road.

 

 

 

 

The Olympics were underway – the Fire Dept, local athletic clubs, Dental Practice/Bank emloyees, etc. were competing in the watermelon-eating contest when we came on the scene. 

We got some beer and barbecued pork sandwiches  for energy to dance the night away. Older people put us to shame.  We’ve got a lot of dancing to learn!
