DC: Car Show Celebrates Wall Fall
Washington, DC - The Spy Museum commemorated the collapse of the Berlin Wall 19th anniversary with a car show and a band. Several Trabants built in East Germany from 1957 to 1991 lined F Street in front of the Spy Museum. “Lucky” drawing winners picked from those willing to turn over their names, cell phone numbers and email addresses were driven around the streets of Washington in Trabants with engines that sounded like lawn mower motors. Smelly blue smoke emissions added to the grass cutter feel.
The 4 hour event included live music from Blaskapelle "Alte Kameraden". This unit of the City of Fairfax Band (Virginia, USA) gave a sidewalk performance of traditional alpine village music.
