Saturday Small Town Talk: Bavarian Blast in New Ulm, MN

Alpensterne Band from Minnesota

I decided each Saturday I would review things I partook of in this city, or things that my city has to offer.

I live in the city of New Ulm, Minnesota.

This weekend we are having our big German celebration called Bavarian Blast!

Lots of German bands show up to perform their fine music!

People dance a lot to the oompah music.

News the Day Before It Happens!

Too bad they don’t say who won the horse races!!

Since all the financial cutbacks and firings in the newspaper world, our little town has not been immune to its repercussions.

For a few years now the Sunday paper is delivered on Saturday.

They could call it the Saturday paper, but you get twice the cartoons.
