Dancing at Silver Springs Park


Every fall, Octoberfest is celebrated at Silver Springs Park. A number of attendees dress in the costumes of their homelands; a band plays the right kind of music; and
there's lots of beer and lots of fun. We took this photo of these two kids dancing up a storm last October.

This definitely made me smile. They look so adorable!

Halcyon said...

Yay! Oktoberfest... altho it's a little early.

Jacob said...

@ Vogon Poet... I don't know. Are you old enough to drink? If not, are you old enough to dance? If the latter, yes. If the first, Yes.

I guess the answer is toddlers like you are welcome!

Lois said...

How cute! I like their outfits.

Certaintly not how I had pictured Florida. I love CDQ's comment. I really like people in action photos like this, especially if they don't know you are taking the picture.

That is the chicken said...

Wonderful!...or should that be wunderbar?!

Felicia said...

Opa and Oma! Great shot!

Wow, that's a nice way to celebrate Octoberfest. Really festive.

Frank said...

Aren't your stockings a bit snug on the leg Jacob? Kick up those heels and live a little. Great capture. Fun!

Mary Stebbins Taitt said...

Looks like fun--hope I can do it when I'm that age in a year or two.

Jacob said...

@ Hey Frank, you're a funny guy! Actually, they were a big snug!

I tried to kick up my heels and that's when I fell head over heels!

;-)

Marie-Noyale said...

What time of day was this taken?...
I see a lot of concentration...not due to a little bit too much of a drink!!!!
Who cares! they are having a great time ...
Hope I can do that when I reach that age!

Jacob said...

@ Marie-Noyale - It was late in the afternoon...they may have imbibed a bit, but I think they were concentrating, trying to get the moves right...

Joy said...

Oh yeah. They definitely were in a zone!

Thanks for visiting Norwich Daily Photo and leaving your comment. Come back tomorrow for more of the Keukenhof series!

"Dancing up a storm", I haven't heard that in years. Thanks!
