Wurstfest - Polka! Polka! Polka! & “Frankinwurst" Comedy Theatre Show.

Wednesday, November 6th (4 p.m. - 9:30 p.m.)

AND... a spectacular WORLD RECORD BREAKING MOMENT (drum roll)

The LARGEST Boomer Chicken Dance in the WORLD!

LET'S DO THE CHICKEN DANCE! Pluck, Pluck, Pluck........

Wurstfest 2013 -

We'll carpool to New Braunfels to eat, drink and Polka! Polka! Polka!
Then, before we head back to Austin, we'll laugh like crazy at “Frankinwurst”!

Once in New Braunfels we will all meet in the Wursthalle (see Grounds Map) at 5:30pm for a group toast and a BOOMER Chicken Dance! BONUS, Wednesday, Wurstfest will be less crowded with shorter lines to food and drink (if any :) AND more room to POLKA! POLKA! POLKA!

We'll end the evening with a huge laugh at, “Frankinwurst”. This is a one hour comedy performance that is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! They say that the show sometimes goes up to 30 minutes longer depending on the audience. Anyone who liked Esther's Follies will really enjoy this! (see description below)
