A little late due to my little holiday, here are my photos for the Pabuca topic “Tradition”, and they are all about Pfaffenhofen’s Volksfest…
Tradition is that during Volksfest times, public and a few (more or less) private buildings are decorated. Like this one, the former mayor’s print shop. Some of the flags apparently have seen quite some tradition…
Tradition is also this greeting (used like “good day” in southern Germany and Austria, roughly translates to “God bless you”) – not just on the Volksfest. The effects of including imaginary sky friends into greetings are most likely just as small as the actions of these sky friends themselves.
Some rides like bumper cars also have lots of tradition – just like roof decorations that aren’t necessary for functionality.
Current Pabuca topic, of course…
In the heart of the town at the main square, there’s the town hall – and it’s its surroundings that I’m showing here, ordered west (front), north, east, south (simply ignoring the 3-pictures-rule). But photographed upwards.
PABUCE topic “Faults”… but whose fault is it anyway?
At the District Office’s construction site, they decided to build a gable at one back corner even though only a normal roof was originally planned and approved – since that casts too much shadow on the opposite house, its owner didn’t like that, and the gable must be removed:
Before – after: What a little landslide can do to a garden…
(This is, by the way, the construction site of the apartment complex where I’m living for two years now. Wasn’t my fault, though.^^)
And a little fault during road markings:
…that is, my latest Lego house in the Cool Yellow color with strange trikes which are adaptations of the Chima Speedorz:

Summertime at Pabuca’s…
Summer – time for outdoor swimming. You got such pools in many towns, but which has such a picturesque clock tower above the main entrance?
Summer – time for the (nearly) annual night flea market, even if that’s mostly taking place during broad daylight (but Munich’s Oktoberfest is mostly in September, too, celebrating just into October):
Speaking of the Oktoberfest: Summer – time for building the beer hall. Our Volksfest, by the way, takes place in early/mid September:
