Next weekend,


in Bonython Park, Adelaide, Adelaide's uproarious Schutzenfest will take place.

This is the world's second largest German shooting festival with more than 30,000 people taking part, after the one in Hannover/Germany.

Schutzenfest is an Adelaide institution and a celebration of South Australia's rich German heritage. It's also an opportunity to drink a whole lot of beer in the parklands as sponsors Dab and Coopers lay on keg after frosty keg of the good stuff for a solid two days.

It's not just about the beer, mind: there's food stalls aplenty (many with traditional German fare) and loads of entertainment throughout the day. There's loads of live music ranging from the traditional oompah-bands to popular party bands, dance performances, children's entertainers and loads more. Schutzenfest aims to be a day for all of the family, although once the sun goes down things do become a little more rowdy.

If you're planning to drink beer in the sun for two days it's best to take sensible precautions. Luckily the central location and access to public transport means that the car can remain safely at home.
