Saturday, October 20, 2018:   The annual Oktoberfest celebration at Ruttger's Bay Lake Lodge
People from everywhere dressed to celebrate the harvest season.
There was even a clown/jester on stilts. 
The man of the hour was Jack Ruttger, head of the family lodge that dates back to 1898.
One of the Oktoberfest traditions is the "tapping of the keg."  It is done with great interest by the visitors.
Everyone was having a great time.
Then the Narren showed up.  They look strange and evil, but it's OK, they make the celebration more fun.
There were singing groups every hour or so.  Lots of German music sung loudly.  Yavolle!
Another band allowed a girl to sing on stage.  Nicely done!
Then there was the yodeling and dancing. 

Quote of the day:     Oktoberfest is dear to my heart.   Mark    < Back to previous story Ahead to next story >
