PIQUA — Everyone is welcome to come celebrate German heritage at the upcoming Oktoberfest being held at St. Boniface Parish.
“This is the third year,” Cindy Huelskamp, co-chair for the event, said. “We will have a lot of rides for the kids and games for them to play, games of chance for the adults.”
Oktoberfest will also feature a variety of German and American food, including cabbage roll dinners, bratwurst, sandwiches, soups, fries, fair waffles, cotton candy, and soft pretzels. The food is all homemade, and there will be a beer garden.
There will also be German and American music as well as raffles, including the annual Oktoberfest Quilt Raffle. There will also be a cake wheel and attendance prizes.
“We have a major awards drawing at the end of the festival, and will give away some prizes,” Huelskamp said. Attendees will have a shot at winning $1,000; $500; or $100. There are three $100 prizes.
Oktoberfest hours are Friday, Sept. 25 from 5-11 p.m., and Saturday, Sept. 26 from 2-11 p.m.
