Slice of Life: Wurstfest

On Saturday, I went with my Aunt Jill & Uncle Carl to Wurstfest!

Wurstfest is a 10 day festival in New Braunfels that celebrates German culture, food, drink and music. It’s held in Landa Park.

It was a great day to enjoy the weather and the Comal River.

But we were really there to eat and drink!! We did a lap around the festival grounds before deciding what to devour.

Naegelin’s Bakery is the oldest bakery in TX.

I couldn’t convince anyone to try the chocolate dipped pickles. Anyone ever had one???

Deep fried sauerkraut balls. You have to deep friend something-or-other when you’re at a festival! They were pretty good!

We each got the 5 kinds of sausage on a stick from New Braunfels Smokehouse. Oh sausage on a stick! SO GOOD!!!

So much beer, so little time

We took a beer break to go up on the ferris wheel. I’m pretty sure I haven’t been on a ferris wheel in over 10 years!

After our carnival fun, we went under the tent to listen to music and…

..drink more beer!

We also shared some German chocolate pie. I’m not a fan of German chocolate cake, but this pie—yes!!! It’s like pecan pie filling, but no pecans, plus coconut. Yum yum yum yum!

I’m glad that I went to Wurstfest and will definitely go again!

So will my uncle. :)
