Raise a glass to the Ger­mans

Pilbara News - - Lifestyle - Louise Alling­ham

Get those dirndls and leder­ho­sen ready for this year’s North West Ok­to­ber­fest, next Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 15.

A lit­tle bit of Ger­many will come to Kar­ratha from 2pm next Satur­day as a beer tent is erected in the city cen­tre.

The event will now take place on the grassed area out­side the Kar­ratha Quar­ter rather than Cat­trall Park.

Event or­gan­iser Bart Par­sons wanted to make the most of the new space. “We wanted to utilise that park and the big tree, so it’ll be pretty cool,” he said.

Now in its sec­ond year, the Kar­ratha Ok­to­ber­fest cel­e­bra­tions will have a silent disco and a wider range of beers on tap, in­clud­ing three in­ter­na­tional and five lo­cal brews.

There will also be tra­di­tional Ger­man food on of­fer as well as drinks, live mu­sic, en­ter­tain­ment, games and com­pe­ti­tions.

Mr Par­sons en­cour­aged pa­trons to dress up and cos­tumes will be avail­able from Blanche Bar. There will be prizes for the best dressed in­di­vid­ual and cou­ple, and a sausage-eat­ing con­test.

In­cluded in the ticket price is a stein and a $10 food voucher.

Tick­ets are $35 and avail­able from Blanche Bar, Edge Surf, Cool Change, Stingaz Surf, North West Liquor or on­line. For more, head to Blanche Bar’s Face­book page.
