Oktoberfest has made its way to Regina’s German Club this weekend.
The two-day event started Friday night with a dinner featuring German cuisine, along with a Mr. and Ms. Oktoberfest competition.
Kids and family entertainment — including face painting, balloon animals and a petting zoo — took over the German Club Saturday afternoon.
A cask tapping ceremony — featuring two locally-crafted and German-inspired brews from Rebellion Brewing and Pile O’ Bones Brewing — kicked off Saturday evening’s events.
Then, at 7:30 p.m., Pile O’ Bones Brewing’s Glenn Valgardson and Rebellion Brewing’s Mark Heise took each other on in a stein hoisting competition.
Later on, the German Club’s Das Volle Lederpaket Schuhplattler Verein dance group is scheduled to perform with their last show being around 9 p.m.
German food will also be on sale, such as bratwurst, soft pretzels and elephant ears.
Oktoberfest is open to all ages.
Tickets are available at the door for $12 for German Club members and $15 for non-members.
