Saturday, October 22, 2016:  Oktoberfest at Ruttger's on Bay Lake.
It is a big annual German heritage event drawing thousands.
A big horn signaled the time of celebration.
Dancing was the order of the day.
Then the Narren showed up.  Dressed with masks, they were a real crowd pleaser. 
Laughs all around by the audience.
Lots of fun that day.
Then there was the Hammerschlagen...trying to pound a nail in a stump with the narrow part of a hammer.  Not easy to do.
The crowd was well dressed, either with outfits that looked like lederhosen or with the real thing. 
Mark met lots of interesting people enjoying the day.  Everyone is German for a day.  You bet your schnitzel they are.

Quote of the day:    Had a great time.   Mark    < Back to previous story Ahead to next story >
