In conjunction with Fort Hays State University's Homecoming celebration, the 2005 Oktoberfest will take place Friday, Sept. 30. Things kick off at Frontier Park at 11:30 a.m. with the annual keg tapping and will conclude at 7 p.m.
The theme this year is "OZ-toberfest: There's no place like homecoming."
There are many booths at Oktoberfest, including the infamous bierocks by many student groups, Oktoberfest T-shirts, and the ubiquitous beer booths. If you're into polka music, you're in luck.
This year, the FHSU Theatre is putting on "Cabaret." My favorite musical of all-time. Unfortunately, I was too much of a chicken to try out for the role of a Kit Kat Girl. *sniffles* Oh well...life goes on!
This area of the world was settled by the VogaGermans that came from the Volga River in Russia. The area has a wonderful german heritage with festivals and attrictions. One of the main events that is a must is OctubreFest or OctoberFest for the English. The festival is a bunch of old VolgaGermans and yound college students drinking German beer, dancing to polka and eating Bearrocks.
A must see,
The festival is once a year and is the last Friday of the Month in Sept.
I'll get some pics of the festival up on this page in a few days.
