pictures from oktoberfest

It was a great opening day of Oktoberfest yesterday. The day started cool and clear, and then the sun burned off the chill to bring the temperature up to a perfect 73 with a light breeze. We sold two baskets outright before the day began, then two more before noon. Another was sold before we left. The spirit of the place was good, the food smelled fab, and we all had fun. We arrived at 8:30 to unload church cookbooks and bring the change to the first shift folks, and ended up staying until 2:00. Don't ask. All is well.

Here are a few pictures from the day. Enjoy! Don't you wish you could come bid on some of our baskets?

The much touted pretzel sticks in their packaging
stinkin' cute pails of candy
a favorite basket: devotional
the Blackhawk helicopter: watched it land: awesome!

Looks as though it was a big success! Our church had an Oktoberfest. It was in the parking lot because we had home-brewed beer to offer and we can't have THAT inside the building! We also had many baskets for silent auction; all of the $ went to Lutheran Disaster Relief. The authentic German food was delicious and, trite though it may be, a good time was had by all.

All of that looks fabulous! I wish we could have been there to get some pretzels & bid on a basket or two.
