Festliche Gemuetlichkeit!

Eins… Zwei… Drei…Zuffa! It’s time for Oktoberfest 2012! Fishermen’s Village has a great day planned for your enjoyment. Don’t miss out on all the fall activities, entertainment, and of course the wiener schnitzel. Oktoberfest will be held October 13th, so make sure to mark your calendars.

To start off the day, Sallie Jones Elementary School chorus will be performing 10:00am to 10:20am, followed by the East Elementary School Chorus performing from 10:30am to 10:50am. Both shows will take place on the Center Court stage. These are some really talented-and not to mention cute- kids! Come and see these adorable children perform, and show your support by participating in the East Elementary “Pumpkin Patch”. The “Pumpkin Patch” is put on all day by parents in the East Elementary PTO. Everyone needs a few pumpkins for autumn, so stop on by and pick out the perfect pumpkin and support the local elementary schools!

Following the chorus performances is the legendary, annual Wiener Dog Derby. This is the biggest event of Oktoberfest! Over 70 dachshunds raced down Center Court last year to the sound of cheering fans.

Call Fishermen’s Village at (800)639-0020 for more information on one of the funniest events of the year.

Throughout the day there will be live music and dance on the Center Court Stage. After the Wiener Dog Derby, “The Steinswingers” perform from 1:30pm to 3:30pm. The polka sounds of “The Steinswingers” create a festive German feel. Also, from 5:00pm to 9:00pm “Peter & Edith” perform you favorite German tunes. The traditional song and dance is a unique treat you won’t find anywhere except at Oktoberfest!

The stores will also be participating in the celebration. All of the village restaurants will be serving German specialties such as wiener schnitzel, sausage, and beer. Make sure to come hungry! Also, each of the merchants will display a scarecrow of their own design outside their store. This is the 4th annual “Scarecrows on Parade” and it will continue from Oktoberfest on the 13th to October 21st. Vote for your favorite scarecrow for a chance to win $100 of “Fishville Bucks” donated by the Fishermen’s Village Merchants!

It’s going to be a great day, so don’t miss out on all the fun! Fishermen’s Village Oktoberfest is from 10:00am to 6:00pm on October 13th. For more information call (800) 639-0020 or check out our website http://www.fishville.com.
