This picture was taken in Oelsnitz (Saxony /Germany) last year. We celebrated the “Day of the Saxons” with lots of festivities; such as music, sports activities. More than 300,000 people were counted during the three days of this local highlight.
Our region used to be a centre of coal mining. Coal has gone – traditions, such as music and uniforms have stayed. Brass bands can be found in every small village.
