Alphorngruppe Alpine Echoes will be strolling the DAS Fest grounds all weekend.
In Switzerland and the German Alpines, the sweetest grass for cows is high in the Alpine Meadows. 200+ years ago, the Alphorn provided a way for shepherds to communicate with their family in the Valley below, and believe it or not, the sound would soothe the cows. Mozart even wrote a symphony incorporating the Alphorn.
OPA'S BINGO HALLE

In the green building.
Germany introduced Bingo in the 1880's as an educational tool to help students study math. It's the same Bingo you know and love, but you'll have to shout "Volltreffer" like they do in Germany if you have the winning card.

In the same style as the Rathaus Glockenspiel on the Marienplatz (central town square in Munich), the Original Live Glockenspiel portrays a comedic snapshot of a day in the life of a Holzhacker, or Lumberjack. Watch as they chop wood, saw logs, and "schuhplattler" (dance).
As much fun to watch as it is to play!
Head over to the Knockerball field located in the Bark Park. Knockerballers are strapped into a large inflatable ball to play an exhilarating game of "tag everyone's it" or just run around and do a few flips and rolls. All ages. Cost to play.
DOXIES & CORGIS!
Cheer on the lovable Dachshunds and their Welsh friends, the Corgis, as they compete for bragging rights, cool prizes, and a strut to the winner's podium.
