7th Annual Little American Oktoberfest on 3 July at the Waldwirtschaft in Grosshesselohe near Pullach

The Waldwirtschaft invites us again to the Little American Oktoberfest. The festivities begin at 12 noon and will continue throughout the day.  Our reserved tables in the beer garden are facing the band located under the white umbrellas.  This year as in every year Linda Jo Rizzo will be the Master of Ceremonies and will entertain us along with Mark Coonradt and the Texas Bandits with country-western, rock and pop music for your dancing pleasure.  There will also be bull-riding with the mechanical bull, wild-west show and square dancing.  Players from the Munich Cowboys football team and the Munich Disciples baseball team will be on hand.  For the kids these is the Kinderschmink and magic tricks.   The Waldwirtschaft will treat us to a keg of free beer during a special keg-opening ceremony. You can also purchase Kobe-beef hamburgers (for a specially reduced price), US steaks and a full assortment of delicious food from the beer garden.  If you can join us please rsvp to hope.moore@t-online.de
