Hundreds of Kar­ratha res­i­dents raised a stein to Ger­many and ev­ery beer lover’s favourite fes­ti­val at the Blanche Bar-run North West Oktoberfest last Satur­day.

The Quar­ter’s grassed City Square space was packed with fes­ti­val­go­ers dressed up in dirndls, sus­penders and leder­ho­sen and ready to cel­e­brate.

Eight types of in­ter­na­tional and lo­cal beers flowed freely on tap, along with Ger­man sausages, pret­zels and in a sur­prise twist, cigars were also on of­fer.

MC Angie Ay­ers led the crowd through reg­u­lar ren­di­tions of the Ger­man na­tional an­them, prizes for the best-dressed guests, a silent disco and a hot dog-eat­ing con­test.

Mu­sic from band Mis­guided, DJ Bobby Chance and gui­tarist Mikey Smith got par­ty­go­ers up and dancing into the night.

A sec­ond North West Oktoberfest event will be held in Port Hed­land’s Civic Cen­tre Gar­dens this Satur­day.
