Volksfest Time in August!!! A big fair each year!!

The Jura Volksfest - the biggest fair in and around Neumarkt!!

There you'll have a great time!

Now I´ll tell you something about the biggest annual festival in Neumarkt.
There were in 2008 about 250.000 people, this is a new record for the city of Neumarkt.
There you'll find quite a lot of fairground rides(Fahrgeschäften) and celebrated.
Last year it was on from the 7th.-17th August.
There played eleven bands (show, rock and folk). 1 liter of beer cost 5,40€.
At the beginning and at the end of the festival there are each year big fireworks.
This is the best time of the year - and it's during our school holidays.
The fairground has a area of 13000 m².
In the beergarden there can sit about 5000 people.
There are the two festival halls which are crowded with visitors from all over Bavaria.
The first festival was in 1850.
On the last day of this fair there is the famous horse market. There are horses and quite a lot of people, too.
On the area were about 10 big rides and very much little rides, last year - so you can have really great fun there.
You can eat there very much different food, for example a big Breze(Breze), a famous Bavarian food.
