Shooting Festival
03-Jul-2009 - 12-Jul-2009 - Hannover (Lower-Saxony) public festivals, town festivities, street festivities

A visit to the biggest shooting festival in the world is a good way to see Hanover letting its hair down. For ten days, the lively cheer prevails into the small hours. The climax of this “crazy” time is a wow-factor "shooting departure" involving around 12,000 people.
