Well that’s a wrap on the 49th annual KW Oktoberfest!  Congratulations to all the clubs and volunteer members who promoted gemütlichkeit and German culture throughout the festival.

Miss Oktoberfest Mikaila Emerich is a wonderful young leader who helped kick off our Uptown Waterloo Oktoberfest luncheon.

Pillers again provided the yummy sausages, and upped the ante to 4,000! Chef D led the barbecue brigade, and attendees ate them all, plus a few dozen vegan sausages!  Wow—-thousands in our Uptown Public Square—perhaps thanks to all the new parking on Regina Street.

A special thank you to all the City of Waterloo staff, councillors and the Uptown BIA members, who made the luncheon a spectacular success.
