Thursday, September 2, 2010

TERRE HAUTE -- The German Oberlandler Club of Terre Haute will host its 38th Oktoberfest the weekend of Sept. 16-18.

Hours are 11 a.m.-midnight Thursday and Friday, Sept. 16-17, and 4 p.m.-midnight, Saturday, Sept. 18.

Admission is free.

The fest, celebrating the Wabash Valley's German-American heritage, will take place at Ninth and Cherry streets in Terre Haute, at the Clabber Girl Festival Marketplace.

The St. Louis Express band and Eddie Korosa Jr. and the Boys from Illinois will provide music for listening and dancing each day, beginning at 4 p.m.

Free "learn to dance the polka," lessons will be offered every day from 4-4:30 p.m. Dancing the polka is as easy as counting "one-two-three."

Club members cook and serve German and American food; take-outs will be available.

Guests must be 21-older to enter the beer garden.

Proceeds will help fund the scholarships and community projects supported by the club.
