Gäubodenvolksfest in Straubing, Bavaria

I found again some  interesting photos in my external hard drive.  These images were taken during a famous festival in Straubing called Gäubodenvolksfest. For all I know, this is the second largest folk festival in Bavaria, Germany after the Oktoberfest in Munich.  This festival is more family friendly that Oktoberfest.  I had the chance to visit it last 2009. Since then, I never had the chance to go back there again.

Like any other volksfest or festivals in Germany, you can find carnival rides, kiosks selling foods and you can taste local foods as well, beer tents  where you can sit  down drinking beer while listening to the live bands and many other things that you can experience in a festival. You can find many Bavarians and tourists wearing the Bavarian costume called the Trachten in Gäubodenvolksfest. In fact, I see more people wearing Trachten here that at the Oktoberfest. Thinking of visiting it again this year.

The Gäubodenvolksfest was founded by Maximilian I Joseph, King of Bavaria in the year 1812 as an agricultural festival to organize an annual meeting of the people in the Danube region.
The Gäubodenvolksfest is a modern and family friendly festival with about 120 carousels, roller coasters and six big beer tents.
