Oktoberfest 2017 at the Holliston Historical Society

by Paul Saulnier
October 25, 2017

The Double Eagle Oktoberfest Band was on hand as usual for the 25th Annual Oktoberfest at the Holliston Historical Society.

The biggest tuba was played by the smallest member of the band.

This year's Oktoberfest was organized by society member Beate (Bea) Hait whose ancestry goes back to the Baden-Wurttemberg area of Germany, which is just west of Bayern where Oktoberfest originated and is still enthusiastically celebrated.

Tables set for nine guests were full by the time the dinner was served. A full plate of red cabbage, sauerkraut, German potato salad, dill pickles and Knockwurst (or Kaesespaetzle for vegetarians) followed by apple crisp and whipped cream. All served with your choice of complimentary specialty beers selected by Crafted of Holliston (http://www.crafted-ma.com/) and wines donated by HollistonReporter.com

 "Regulars" in the kitchen are members Melissa Ford, above, and Laura Raney, below. Many more members helped but are camera shy.

After dinner Andrew Mades teamed up with Jumping Johnny (https://youtu.be/rtY8fw7fpAc) and then other thrill seekers agreed to dance with the Stumpf Fiiddle.

Catch the Stumpf Fiddle competition in the videos below:
