Oktoberfest to start first weekend of November

It’s almost time to don your favourite lederhosen and enjoy some German food and culture. Lethbridge will be hosting Oktoberfest, which is a traditional Munich festival. A total of 800 people will be allowed inside for the festivities. The Pogo Bros entertainment company will be in charge of the event, and co-manager of the company, John Pogorzelski, says he is hoping Oktoberfest will be a lot of fun for everyone, especially considering the current restrictions.

“We’ve got wonderful German beer that we bring in every year. The band Alpen Schatz is coming back, so we’re going to have some live Oom Pa Pa music. Then my brother will be playing mid-round games where you can win great prizes. Mostly free swag. If you yodel well, you can take that. If you can hold a stein, you can win some prizes. We’re even going to have a bratwurst eating competition on both nights. There’s going to be a lot of eating, drinking, and singing some songs that my brother will guide everyone through and just all around having a fun time.”

Oktoberfest will run November 5th and 6th at Exhibition Park by the Main Pavillion.
