That's a previous stallion parade.
This year's dates Sep 29, Oct 3 and 6th
That's too late for you, I'm afraid.
Have your relatives find out about visiting from over there, not that you go and find closed doors.

Your own maple syrup is an impressive hostess gift, IMO. Maybe you could make them some pancakes whilst there.

There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.

My relatives used to bring Peanut Butter by the suitcase-full when we lived in Germany but that was um... a really long time ago. I'm sure Peanut Butter is probably readily available now.

I was going to suggest this but I thought it sounded silly...I love pb, and the last time I was there (a while ago, for sure) it was soooooo expensive. There was plenty of it available, but sold in small jars for more than the huge jars here.

PB is available, but costs a fortune. But I haven't been home in nearly ten years, it could have changed.
One thing for sure hasn't changed, and although not a gift, it should be most welcome...aspirin and ibuprofen. Last time I got a 20- piece pack of aspirin in Italy, and prices are about the same Europe wide, I payed nearly 10$.

My mom is in Paris, and before she left, she asked the landlord where she's staying if he wanted anything. He requested beef jerky.

She's going to Germany in a few days, so I can ask her to look in stores to see what's what.

I love the ideas!
I am testing to see if my post is erased for the third time before I post longer.

The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago, the second best time is today.

I love the stallion parade, It is to late for me though.
Advil and PB are a yes in the suitcase.

I think my syrup and a receipe is a good idea, my MIL I think thinks Germany is still the same as 60 years ago. I make a wicked maple syrup creme brule.
As a mater of fact when my Hubbies relatives get to talking and drinking after dinner, from the sound of them you would think they thought they won the war.

They probably share war stories lol. In general, in southern Germany Americans are well liked. Even during the war, from what my mom told me.
Plus, where you're going, it's small town. You guys are " trophies", so to speak, . Talk of the town for sure....
