You know it's October with the arrival of Oktoberfests. This year marks the first ever at Our Lady Queen of Peace. It took place over three days, providing the opportunity for all West Enders to enjoy music, games, rides and food.
Some of the highlights included Cow Plop Bingo, a car show, a Haunted Hayride, rides and games.
Musical entertainment such as the Edelweiss Dancers, The Adlers, Polka with Al Stubits provided just the right touch for an Oktoberfest. And in between, Michael Cabot, The Riverside Band, Beneath the Surface, Sage, The Adam Jacob Experience, Red Pandas, Robb Taylor & Flirtin' with the Mob, Michael Pilgermayer provided their own brand of music and entertainment.
For those hungry, there was Oktoberfest cuisine from bratwurst, knockwurst, pulled pork, hot dogs and sauerkraut and pretzels. There was homemade apple crisp with ice cream, corn on the cob, pierogies, french fries and more. To make it a true Oktoberfest, there was Yuengling beer and wine from Big Creek Vineyards.
The event was sponsored by Yuengling Brewery and Banko Beverage.
"It's a really nice event. We're having a great time," said Lindsey and John Blundetto of Gilbert.
