Pilbara News - - Lifestyle -

It’s time to dust off your dirndls and leder­ho­sens be­cause North West Ok­to­ber­fest is back for 2017.

Hed­land and Kar­ratha can ex­pe­ri­ence a taste of Ger­many at Cat­trall Park on Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 14, and at the Port Hed­land Turf Club on Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 21.

Event or­gan­iser Bart Par­sons said tick­ets were sell­ing fast.

“Last year our ca­pac­ity was 700, this year we have bumped it up to 1000. Col­lec­tively, Port Hed­land and Kar­ratha are 75 per cent sold,” he said.

North West Ok­to­ber­fest has proved very pop­u­lar since its be­gin­ning in 2015.

The day will in­clude Ger­man food and drinks, games, bands, en­ter­tain­ment and a silent disco.

“We are cook­ing a pig on a spit, plus there will be a few more games, lo­cal bands Bryan and Pete, Mis­guided and the Ten Deep DJs,” Mr Par­sons said.

There will be prizes for best dressed in­di­vid­ual and cou­ple and a sausage-eat­ing con­test.

Cos­tumes are avail­able for pur­chase at Blanche Bar in Kar­ratha.

Tick­ets are $39, in­clude a $10 voucher and are avail­able from Blanche Bar, Edge Surf, Cool Change, Stingaz Surf, North West Liquor or goo.gl/ktevf2.
