Several thousand people turned out for Oktoberfest at Most Holy Rosary in the Town of Maine this past weekend.  The Oktoberfest celebration began Friday evening and wrapped up yesterday (Sunday) at 2 P.M.

Oktoberfest at Most Holy Rosary is a tradition in our community and is held annually close to or on the first weekend of October. The family friendly Festival  includes games for the children, a bake sale, live music and plenty of delicious ethnic food delights.  Sauerbraten dinners were available on Sunday for the first time and sold out.  One of the traditional favorites every Oktoberfest is Manhattan Clam Chowder. Many visitors enjoyed it while at Oktoberfest and then ordered takeout to enjoy on another day.

Oktoberfest also features a bake sale with plenty of pies, brownies, cookies and cannoli. Live music was a big part of the festivities.  Sunday's group was Hot Dogs & Gin featuring ten-year old lead guitarist and vocalist Eammon Hubert who drew plenty of attention and applause for his superb performance.
