When you hear "Germany" or to be more precise "Bavaria", you're automatically associating it with dumplings, pretzels, beer, traditional costumes, folk music and of course with the "Oktoberfest" in Munich.
Summing up all of the existing prejudices, we can say that they are providing the image of a fuddy-duddy, narrow-minded and bourgeois citizen. Nevertheless there's one event taking place in Kronach once a year that is similar to the "Oktoberfest", although, it's not as big and famous. This special event occurs once a year for ten days in the beginning of august. All the inhabitants and also people from all over Germany attend this so called "Schützenfest". It is a great time of entertainment and cultural activities which makes many former residents to return back home for this special time.
