Silvester Party at Bayernhalle Garmisch Partenkirchen 2010

Bayernhalle  performers
Wandering around the Bavarian resort town of Garmisch Partenkirchen on New Year's Eve we spotted posters promoting a 'Silvestre' event  and made our way to this venue. It was exactly what you might expect, a large gathering of mostly locals whiling away the hours by drinking, eating and being amused by tarditional party turns .  We especially loved Catherine with her Cow Bell Solo, followed by euphonium and clarinet turns, all very good indeed.  The woodchopping pancake turning routine had us a bit baffled.  Finally a sing song  (Ce Sera Sera a pan European favourite it seems) and a good old knees up before all going out to look at the fireworks. Sehr gut  fun !

  1. I was reminded of this experience this afternoon listening to Mark O Halloran talking to Sean Moncrief on Newstalk about his travels in Bavaria.
