Oh what fun we have every year in August at Germania. We have a few Octoberfests around the Cincinnati area but this one clearly is the best. Crowds are small, the food is authentic and the beer is cold!
Some of the highlights:
They have a festive beer hall........
A lively and fiercly competitive Tug O' War competition is held featuring local fire/police departments, German organizations and of course the Ancient Order of Hiberians (the Irish). The picture below are the teams parading through the festival grounds.
Of course.....there are shots of Jager and Schnapps! The Jello Wench thoroughly enjoyed herself today!
And last but not least, it is worth mentioning the Wagon of Cheer! This is always popular for those who are feeling lucky! If there isn't something in this wagon that you care to drink......you don't even need to be at this festival!
All in all it is a good way to end the Summer on a positive note.......now where is my stein?
