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!
