I was a little shocked to discover Odessa’s (Wash.) Deutschesfest has its own website. But, it does, and there it is.
I’m attending this year’s Deutschesfest – more commonly referred to as simply “fest” though I think most locals would argue it’s capitalized, much like Grant County Fair’s “Fair Week” is – with Pete. Apparently it’s a pretty big deal, and I was happy to find out earlier this year that the Pendleton Round-Up and Fest fell on different weekends this year (they’re usually at the same time, which is why Pete didn’t go to Pendleton with me last year).
As if looking at the pictures online aren’t enough, I’ve been hearing stories about Fest for more than a year now – I won’t go into details but they involve the beer garden and my beloved boyfriend getting into copious amounts of trouble.
Should be interesting and, surprisngly, I’m quite excited.
