■ With German beers like Hofbrau and Hoegaarden flowing, there was plenty of cheer at Cattrall Park in Peg’s Creek to end last month as hundreds of eventgoers enjoyed sunshine and brews.
The crowd was a field of dirndls and lederhosen for Blanche Bar’s first Oktoberfest out in open parklands.
The hot Pilbara summer was kept at bay by a pumping reticulation system, although punters weren’t afraid to get a bit sweaty dancing to a bit of live music.
Prizes were given out for the best-dressed individuals and couples.
A sausage-eating competition was also held.
