Gemuetlichkeit Days is a community festival to build spirit and unity by celebrating our community’s German heritage
in a family friendly atmosphere.
What does “Gemuetlichkeit” mean?
The link in the above question takes you to Wikipedia. Our city is mentioned at the end of the first paragraph!
Our theme for 2014 is Fest der Blumen which translates to Festival of Flowers
This will be a fun and colorful theme. Any ideas for your own float? Decorating your home or business?
