The Fortuna Senior Services will be hosting an Oktoberfest celebration in the Rohner Park on Oct. 19th from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The Knights of Columbus will be serving a traditional German-style dinner from 12 to 3 p.m. Dinner will include brats, sweet and sour red cabbage, German-style potatoes, and apple strudel.

During the day's events, the Scotia Band -- known for the day as the Pumpernickel and Sauerkraut Band --will be performing along with the Humboldt Accordionaires.

It is not all about the food and drinks for this festive gathering. There will be beer barrel and stein racing, yodeling, a kazoo play along, and pretzels.

Proceeds will benefit the Fortuna Senior Services.
