Last night after work Heather and I made our annual pilgrimage to the Oaks Park Oktoberfest. The festivities go on all weekend, but we have a date with the Polish Festival Saturday, and Sunday is catch up on blogging day.
The Main Festhalle is where most of the action – dancing and drinking – takes place.
And every year I have gone, the Polkatones have performed.
We had a few beers with our friends Andy, Adrian, and Tim.
Heather, as you can tell, was having a great time!
One of other reasons I love me some Oktoberfest is the accordions . . .
. . . and the lederhosen and dirndl-clad entertainers!
But mostly, I love the bier.
Alas, because we went on Friday, we missed the weiner dog races this year. But we’ll be back next year. Those doggies are cute! We’ll have to make due with Heather’s 2009 footage of the magical event.
