Drehorgelfest Berlin! Street Organ Festival

Each year Berlin hosts the International Street Organ Festival (Internationales Drehorgelfest). The festival attracts Street Grinders from around the world, including grinders from as far away as the USA, and Chile. The highpoint of the festival is the "Parade der Drehorgelspieler" (Parade of the Street Grinders) along Kurfürstendamm in Charlottenburg. The festival isn't hip, edgy, or avant-garde. It's so un-Berlin. Nevertheless, it's fun and enjoyable! Unfortunately, I missed this year's parade, but there's always next year.
