Jugendfest is a festival that brings the whole town of Cordast together every 5 years. There is a big parade where folks ride their horses, tractors and old cars. My host brother was driving one of our tractors in the parade! Local farmers set up food stands and all sorts of raffles. There is no shortage of entertainment and games. Lotto is a big hit but comes second to the egg game. This egg game is tradition where they run back and forth throwing eggs and catching them in blankets. It is a lot more fun than it sounds. Unfortunately I don't have any photos of the egg game, I was busy enjoying the moment but here are some shots of the parade.
