Raise a glass!

Welcome in the beautiful autumn month of October by celebrating the German celebration of Oktoberfest.

The Galena Lions Club will once again bring this fun fall festival to Galena, with the ninth annual Oktoberfest taking place on Saturday, Oct 3.

The event will kickoff at noon at Galena’s Depot Park, and will feature live music, children’s games, pumpkin decorations, the famous wiener dog races, a beer stein endurance contest and plenty of food and drink.

Bring family and friends for a fun-filled afternoon including a beanbag tournament, raffle drawings with great prizes, polka dancing lessons and the ceremonial tapping of the keg.

Admission is $5 for adults and free for children 12 and under.
