The inaugural Oktoberfest held on Friday, September 9th and Saturday, September 10th 2016, saw a grand German celebration in the St Joseph Gardens across from church. The second Oktoberfest held on Friday, September 29 and Saturday, Septmeber 30, was even grander than the first (No rain!) We enjoyed authentic German music, cuisine and spirits served in a Bavarian village setting.  Music was provided by the 3 piece SchnappsBand (Friday) and the Pete Wagner Band (Saturday). We also had German dancers, split the pot, Big Six, poker and other games.
