Weekly Winners #35 - Oct/05 to Oct/11

CanadaThe winners for this week are coming from the Community Breakfast in Uptown Waterloo. This is part of the inaugural ceremonies for the 40th K-W Oktoberfest. I don't know if it was because of the beautiful weather, or the new location or maybe because of the 40th anniversary, but the truth is that I had never seen so many people before!

I hope you like the pictures. Gemütlichkeit! :-)

ArgentinaLos ganadores de esta semana vienen del desayuno comunitario que tuvimos en Uptown Waterloo. Esto es parte de las ceremonias inaugurales del cuadragésimo K-W Oktoberfest. No sé si fue por el hermoso clima, o por la nueva ubicación del evento (en pleno centro) o si fue por los cuarenta años, pero nunca había visto tanta gente!

Espero que les gusten las fotos. Gemütlichkeit! :-)

As I said, lots of people in there. Do you see the smoke in the back? That's the beginning of the line!
Como dije, muchísima gente. Ven un poquito de humo bien al fondo? Ahí empezaba la fila!

There was no way I could get Flor to pose with Onkel Hans! She was absolutely terrified... :-)
No hubo manera de que Florencia posara con Onkel Hans! Estaba aterrorizada... :-)

Barrel rolling races! And they were full! :-)
Carreras de barriles! Y estaban llenos! :-)

Some were really good at this (my neighbour Mark is wearing the black jacket)
Algunos eran realmente buenos para esto (el de negro es mi vecino Mark)

Some were a little 'too' competitive...
Algunos terminaron siendo un poquito 'demasiado' competitivos...

After about 20 minutes, we finally got to the place where they were serving breakfast
Luego de unos 20 minutos, finalmente llegamos al lugar donde servían los desayunos

Most of the servers were local celebrities (like the guys from AM570 News here)
La mayoría de los que servían eran celebridades locales (como la gente de AM570 News aquí)

That was my serving: three pancakes, four sausages.
Este fue mi plato: tres panqueques, cuatro salchichas.

  1. What I find funny is that we had that same mascot-guy at our social gathering at school last week, only he had a different outfit on and represented Figaro's Pizza. Looks like you all had fun!

  2. Wow! These were great! It really was an insight into your world!

  3. Great fun. I love festivals like that. The barrel rolling looks like it would be a lot of fun to watch.

  4. Looks like you guys had a lot of fun... the barrel rolling pictures were great!

  5. You captured this fun time perfectly. I couldn't help but laugh at the barrel roller that fell.. I know, I'm bad!

  6. Onkel Hans IS kind of scary-looking, so I get where Flor is coming from. :)

  7. What a fun event this must have been!!

  8. Se ve tan divertido!!! Espero para el próximo año asistir!Saludos!

  9. Onkel Hans terrifies me too.Fun looks like everyone had a great time.

  10. Ooh - I think I would have been afraid of that Hans guy, too!

  11. That looks like So. Much. Fun. I can't believe how long that line was though.

  12. Awesome weather for Oktoberfest this year, Gabriel. Glad you and the family enjoyed it... great pix!

  13. The sausage thingy lost its theme. Sorry, pops.

  14. LOL. I can hardly blame Flor for being frightened of Onkle Hans. I have lived here most of my life and he still scares me! Jessie wants to check out the parade..It is only steps away from my front door, but I am still not convinced that I want to watch. We'll see if the nice weather holds up, I might take the doggies to watch :)

  15. Thank you for advertising in my site. You have very funny pictures here, you totally captured the event. Thanks for sharing!

  16. Gab, <>Happy Thanksgiving Day!!!<>No entiendo qué tiene que ver Waterloo con Oktoberfest. Hay muchos alemanes??Qué rico se ve todo y qué animación!!!Muchos besos ♥

  17. Mmmm, que rico se ve el desayuno! Tengo que gusta la comida!

  18. <>Jacqueline<>, la región de Waterloo -y especialmente Kitchener- tiene una colonia alemana realmente muy grande.De hecho, Kitchener se llamaba 'Berlin' hasta la Primera Guerra Mundial...De ahí la tradición del Oktoberfest. En un mes y algo, ya se viene el Christkindl (el festival aleman de la Navidad)...

  19. DIVERTIDISIMO>... yo quiero... aunque la fila de 20 minutos sin haber desayunado no me parece tan divertida...

  20. what a fun family photo u had :DPlease drop at my PH post also : < HREF="" REL="nofollow">in HERE<> or < HREF="" REL="nofollow">HERE<> Thanks
