Pun­ters tap into cul­ture

Pilbara News - - Pilbara News - Pe­ter de Krui­jff

Hun­dreds of Pil­bara res­i­dents had their fill of sausage and beer at events across the re­gion at the week­end for Ok­to­ber­fest cel­e­bra­tions.

The in­ti­mate Wick­ham OB’s wel­comed res­i­dents from Roe­bourne, Point Sam­son and Wick­ham on Fri­day night and was decked out with lit­tle blue and white flags hang­ing from the rafters.

The dress code was strictly leder­ho­sen and ev­ery­one had dressed the part.

Some of the rev­ellers were in such a fes­tive mood they also made it to the Ok­to­ber­fest in Cat­trall Park in Peg’s Creek the fol­low­ing day.

It was the first time Blanche Bar had held the event in the park.

The beer flowed and it wasn’t long be­fore bar staff were in­un­dated with hun­dreds of pun­ters who had come out in droves to en­joy the sun­shine and waltz­ing.

A retic­u­la­tion sys­tem kept at­ten­dees cool and the sound of tubas was re­placed with a band which played some more con­tem­po­rary mu­sic to get the crowd up and danc­ing.

Prizes were given out for the best dressed and best dressed cou­ples while a sausage eat­ing com­pe­ti­tion hit the spot for the truly de­voted bratwurst eaters.
