A local festival in Germany

Mannheim Stadtfest (town festival) was held for 3 days in the middle of the quadrate, along the planks, and extending out toward the Wasserturm, an apparent icon of Mannheim. It’s pretty awesome for the city to have these sort of communal events – an excuse to chill out with friends/family, eat really good food or in my case, an extended break from studying for my final exams (tehe!). We actually didn’t have a good idea of the reason behind the festival but apparently this is the 25th year of the celebration! And I mean, most of us exchange students probably won’t be returning to Mannheim any time soon so why not check it out if you’ve got time.
