Fun night brew­ing for town

Biggen­den to en­joy a taste of Ger­man cul­ture at Ok­to­ber­fest

Central and North Burnett Times - - OKTOBERFEST FEATURE -

BIGGEN­DEN is go­ing to get a taste of Ger­many when Ok­to­ber­fest comes to the town on Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 18.

The Biggen­den Apex Club event will fea­ture Euro­pean beer, Ger­man food and live bands.

Sec­re­tary Rob­bie Radel said the club had raised a lot of money in the past 12 months, thanks to the support of the com­mu­nity.

“In turn the club has do­nated thou­sands of dol­lars to var­i­ous or­gan­i­sa­tions in Biggen­den and beyond.

“Now it’s the club’s chance to say thank you for this support and stage an event for the com­mu­nity to sit back and have some fun,” he said.

Those want­ing to en­ter the spirit of the oc­ca­sion by find­ing them­selves an au­then­tic out­fit have been hit­ting up eBay.

Mr Radel said there would be prizes for best-dressed male and fe­male, along with a lucky door prize and raf­fles.

The $30 ad­mis­sion price in­cludes an en­graved beer stein, so peo­ple will have a sou­venir of the night.

Doors open at 5pm at the Biggen­den Show­grounds.

Pa­trons will be greeted with a hall dec­o­rated in a Bavar­ian theme.

“There will be two bands pro­vid­ing en­ter­tain­ment, along with nov­elty games with a Ger­man twist,” Mr Radel said.

Taste­buds will be tempted by the Ger­man food on sale.
