Thanks - GEN !

It was an interesting day - We went to the Marienplatz but there was a political rally ( interesting in itself) but there was nothing in the Viktrolmkt 50% closed, and they turned off the Glockenspiel for the 12;00 pm show :-( ,many shops ( even the tourist ones, were closed)

Well yeah - that's why the village Maypoles are the thing to do. It's Labor Day, a federal holiday, and stuff is closed.  Some places they even have riots.

I went to a village Maypole raising one year that was also a Gaufest, so lots of Trachten Vereins there in their different costumes. It was a real photo op, especially recording the start-to-finish process of raising the Maypole by hand.
