We always hear raves from everyone who joins us at this annual festival. Those who weren't able to attend always feel like they missed a lot!!
Supper is included. It's pot luck, but the German Club provides lots of the food, too, and there's always plenty. Each German Class receives an assignment about what to bring. Write in, if you'd like suggestions about you might contribute! YES! We can't wait to hear from you, and to welcome you to our annual OKTOBERFEST!
Just like at the original OKTOBERFEST in Munich, you'll feel more like a participant if you are wearing a costume (at least, a crazy hat)! As for entertainment, you might even be asked to participate in a colorful student-organized parade! There's also always a spoof of the royal wedding in Munich between Prince Ludwig and Princess Theresa. After all, that's what launched the world's first-ever Folk Festival.
Also, the German Classes always carefully select and rehearse their skits -- keeping entertainment value in mind. Each year, the guy and girl with the best costumes will be coronated "Herr und Frau OKTOBERFEST"; this pair then reigns during the rest of the evening. And, something we all look forward to each year, is the wonderful Bavarian "Schuhplattler" dancers of Pawtucket, who, besides performing, get us up and dancing, too.
