The Wurst of Times



Shake out your lederhosen, dust off your dirndle and get to Fortuna this weekend for Oktoberfest on Saturday, Sept. 26 at Rohner Park from 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. (free admission, $20 dinner, $5 beer, $5 dinner for kids 12 and under). The fundraiser for Fortuna Senior Services features a traditional German-style dinner where damen und herren can feast on brats, sweet and sour red cabbage, German-style potatoes, apple strudel and German and local beer. And the little schnitzels can enjoy kiddie food as well — hot dogs and mac and cheese. There's plenty of Old World merry-making, drinking and dancing. Fill up the steins and dance in lines — maybe even get your chicken dance on. (Ever wonder where that silly tradition originated? You got it. After plentiful drinking at an Oktoberfest.) The good times keep rolling with beer barrel and stein races, polka dancing and "oompah" music by the Scotia Band and Humboldt Accordionaires.
