Saint Coloman Festival

On our way out of Schwangau on Sunday we ran into a detour.  We didn’t think much of it until we were in sight of St. Coloman church and had a fireman basically put us into a farm field turned parking lot.  Well, it turns out that we ran into the festival day of St. Coloman church, with a Catholic Bishop and all.  There was a cool parade of Lederhosen and Dirndl wearing Bavarian’s on horseback set among the scenic background of the Allgäu mountains.  I left the spectators and spent some time walking and photographing among the horses.  Pretty cool sight to ‘accidentally’ come across.

    Hey Tony,

    We were just on the way home (after the weekend), so it was a cool event that I hadn’t planned on. We probably wouldn’t have stopped, but our only option was to go into the parking lot (field). Then I noticed the crowds and figured that something cool must be happening. Lucky accident.

    You got a Fuji 617!!! Awesome!
