Pfarrfest 2012- Oberpullendorf, Austria: Travels
One of the first events we attended in Oberpullendorf was Pfarrfest or "Parish Festival". It is a yearly event, run by volunteers. It starts with a mass, then the party is held outdoors in the church's yard.
Tents occupied with tables and benches, music by the local band as well as children's choir singing and plenty of food and drinks! The roast chicken stopped me in my tracks. What a beautiful sight.
The event ran all day and late into the evening. I heard the police had to shut it down at 11pm for noise disturbance. Who would have ever thought the Church would be such a rockin' good time :)
