Oktoberfest, one of the year’s most anticipated events, returned to the Redstone Activity Field, Sept. 12-15.
The German tradition with an Alabaman twist, hosted by Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation, included carnival games and rides, a craft biergarten, Battle of the Bands,
traditional German food, music and more.
While the weekend was hot, that didn't detract Fest goers from having some fun -- one couple can even now boast they got engaged at Oktoberfest. Friday night's keg tapping included a special visit and remarks from Civilian Aide to the Secretary of the Army Joe Fitzgerald, who helped Garrison Command Sgt. Maj. Billy Counts tap the keg, as Garrison Commander Col. Kelsey Smith and Fest sponsors looked on.
