    Clue: There's something peculiar about the way the people in the parade (and some in the audience) are dressed, or perhaps I should say 'equipped'.

    That was the first thing I paid attention to and used in my research. Turns up nothing; I guess that is a common practice.

    Since they are all dressed in nice winter clothing, maybe New Hampshire?

    I hazard you looked up the wrong thing, or it would have been top of the results.

    Really, is it a recent one? I picked it solely because I saw Kufstein had a castle on my way back from Tirol last month.

    Huh, I had the same thing last month. Came back from Scotland and the first starting screen showed a castle I'd actually visited there ..... spooky.

    No takers? This location popped up when I was trying to solve Loli's puzzle.

    If you know what the place is, why don't you give an answer?

    Because I wanted to give others a chance and don't really like taking the turn immediately after my place has been guessed. But as no one else is taking a guess, Hermann castle and Ivangorod fortress on the Narva river.

    Thanks. Now that I hear the answer, I feel a bit ashamed for not realizing where I should have looked for it. For some reason the architectural cues escaped me and I got frustrated trying to find it.
