Elf fantasy fair
I have been googling pictures of Haarzuilens; most pictures I find are from the Elf Fantasy Fair. The castle is the yearly location of this event. Which is in my perception a ridiculous event. A few days of the year the town is flocked with elfins, hobbits, devils, Goths and whatever fantasy figures. I was ones at the train station when the fair just ended, so the station was full with this creatures, harmless really, but I can't help feeling a bit commiserate. Then a train load of football supporters arrived…….. They made such a fool of the dressed up people it was hilarious.
