Galena Oktoberfest 2021

It’s not often that I get a Saturday off with nothing scheduled. Friends suggested I volunteer a few hours to the Galena Lions Club during their annual Oktoberfest.  I immediately called and was put on the volunteer list for the day.  
This year’s crowd was amazing; dare I say the largest crowd yet?  If you didn’t attend PLEASE save the date for next year; scheduled for Saturday, October 1, 2022.  You will not be disappointed!
If you would like to attend as a volunteer please contact the Galena Lions Club.

The Dogs!

Attending with your K-9 family is a must! Here are some of the ones attending the 2021 event.

Wiener Dog Races

I believe this part of the 2021 Galena Oktoberfest was probably my favorite.  I have to be honest and say I have never been to a Weiner Dog Race before and they ran a LOT quicker than I expected.  It was a good thing there were several different races; senior, open & puppy.  Which is your favorite?

Tapping the Keg

I was warned ahead of time not to stand down wind.  I am thankful it wasn’t an eruption I had anticipated!

Beer Stein Endurance Contest

When I was a child, my family and I lived in Germany for several years.  I was never able to see this contest live.  It was so much fun to watch the faces of the competitors just before they had to surrender.  I’ll post a video when I get it complete.

The People

Were you there?  If you didn’t make it this year you definitely need to save the date for next year!

The Volunteers

No event would be a success if it weren’t for those that take time to volunteer. The Galena Lions Club would like to thank everyone for spending their day at the Galena Oktoberfest 2021!
