A great turnout today for Oktoberfest.  Crowds were arriving early for the kick-off, brots were hot and beer was cold. Umpa bands played the polka all day long.

Oktoberfest

Published by under General Information

Our Oktoberfest celebration is this weekend and we expect a nice crowd and beautiful weather.  Fall foliage is about to peak and this morning I sat on the porch and listened to the bull elk bugeling.
