oktoberfest

please enjoy some photos taken in Historic Germantown (downtown Nashville area) on

Oktoberfest 2009

this area has wonderful old bungalows mixed with hip new made to look old structures.

i have attended this fun festival for years and it has grown immensely.

the people watching (one of my fave sports) is incredible.

nothing says Oktoberfest better than studs in leiderhosen! (sp?!)

this really colorful neighborhood usually has a tour of homes on this date,

but this year the tour will be in December showcasing holiday decorating.

of course i'll be there for that!





this particular home was on a recent tour and these guys were featured on an h.g.t.v. show.



check out the staircase inside this home + reflection!


the season is slowly changing here.

i'll try to give you an up to date fall foliage forecast.

Hello. First visit here, I believe. I'm just down the road from you in Huntsville. I love to come to Franklin. I'll have to try and remember this event next year. Looks like fun.

Great photos - thanks for sharing. I worked in downtown Nashville many years ago. I probably would get lost there now. Hope to make a trip to Franklin in the next few weeks - love it there

Love the background music, Polka, Polka, Polka!! Had fun going to our annual Octoberfest outing and now re-living our fun through your photographs! I sometimes wonder if we were at the same places, as you capture some fantastic sights that I never remember seeing. Keep jogging this old memory!
