Oktoberfest 2010 - Sunday September 26

Day two begins!

The bounce, is in 'da HOUSE!

Religious keepsakes and sacramentals are offered for sale...

At 1:30, the German Youth Dancers from the Carpathia Club arrived and put on one heck of a show...

These dancers were one of the highlights of the event for sure..

Meanwhile the crowd became larger and larger as the Choral Fest drew near...

Traditional German folk music was played by Herb Langegger...

Herb and his friend Tony also won "the Blog's" best dressed award...

At 3:00 sharp the Choral Concert began.  Here is the event program...

Oktoberfest 2010 - Choral Concert Program

After the Concert, the winning raffle tickets were drawn by St. Joseph's pastor Father Czarnota.  This years prizes included dinner for two at any restaurant in southeast Michigan, an autographed Gordie Howe hockey stick and two autographed baseballs, one from Miguel Cabrarra and one from Justin Verlander! 

And finally the 2010 Oktoberfest ended with a trip back in time with the 1950's and 1960's cover band the Lira's!

And there it is, the 2010 Oktoberfest.  A great many thanks to all the hard work, countless hours of planning, preparation and execution by all the parish volunteers who made this event happen.  It was a great event because of all of you. 

We pray through all our labors, we can continue the tradition, at our little slice of heaven on Jay Street.  St. Joseph....pray for us!

"Ite ad Joseph!"
