On Monday the schools let out early so the kids could attend the Onion Festival in Downtown Bern. It was crazy. There were booths of food, onion bouquets, and anything else that can possibly be made with an onion. The whole community gathers together and everyone throws confetti at each other and if you"re lucky you get boncked on the head with a hammer. I thought the hammer thing was just for the little kids, but everyone was doing it. We met our friends the Brady's and had fun just being part of the craziness.
