Oktoberfest 2008

The annual Oktoberfest sponsored by Mainstreet featured lots of good food, music, and wonderful weather.
Early in the evening, a tuba band entertained. This year the Education Club from St. Joseph's College entertained kids with face painting and cookie decorating. They are in the upper left of the picture below.
In past years it has been very cold, so the organizers have provided wood fires. This year their heat was not needed, but they provided ambiance. The brick street also provides ambiance.
Darkness comes quickly now that we are in October. And that is when the serious partying begins, with a rock band, dancing, and, of course, beer.
