This will likely be the last post for Wacken 2014.
While the highlight of Wacken is the bands and music, the people add greatly to the festival.
Here are some of the interesting people enjoying their time:
Santa Claus and his elves enjoying a break before the Christmas rush
We finally found Waldo in the beer garden
Fun in the medieval village
General fun and games

Here are a few pictures of them at work (and even having a bit of fun along the way)
