Every August, Lennie Burmeister and his family have an 'end of summer' festival on their land in Wietzen, Germany. It is in the middle of farm country between Hannover and Bremen and the perfect escape from the city life in Berlin.
On the land, Lennie has a skatepark in a old barn. It was his TF before TF's were the standard. Some people joke that it is one of the oldest indoor skateparks in Germany, which it probably might be. The Barn has helped a whole generation of skaters in the area with somewhere to go in the middle of farm country. With the closet city 45 minutes away, anywhere paved to skate is the best place ever!
This was my 3rd time at Sommerfest and next year will be the 20th anniversary. Good times with good friends... That is what it is all about! I am looking forward to the next one and who know who will show up next time! You never know these days!
