Die Miternaechters



Besides the food and drink, there was plenty of other entertainment at the Germanfest - including the (locally) famous Miternaechters. We enjoyed a few stanzas of the Chicken Polka - known to Germans as the Duck Dance. There were even a few authentic German folk songs, although my husband had a hard time understanding their "southern" accents (and I'm not talking about Bavaria here). It was a lot of fun though and I applaud the band for wearing real lederhosen. I don't need to hear the chicken polka for awhile though. Once per year, or less, is plenty for me.

je ne connais pas la "chicken polka" mais cela doit être assez bizarre ;o))

Olivier: Si, si tu le connais… c’est « la danse de canard » en français.

I'm with you, once a year is plenty.

It does sound like a lot of fun.

I agree about polka not more than once a year, but everything there looks like fun!

Chicken Polka? How do you cook that? ;-)

Lois Anne used to play accordion and knew a few polkas...

Glad you had a good time!

Could probably go a year without seeing those outfits also. I bet it was fun though.
