Today’s Holiday:
Pied Piper Open Air Theater

This dramatization of the Pied Piper of Hamelin is presented on an open-air stage in Hamelin (or Hameln), Germany. According to the legend, in 1284 Hamelin was infested with rats. A stranger promised to free the town of vermin if they would pay him. The town agreed, and the piper led the rats to the Weser River where they were drowned. When the citizens refused to pay the piper, he led 130 children out of the town and they disappeared forever. Today, the children of Hamelin are the principal performers in the play, and their number is limited to 130 in keeping with the legend.
