Spent a full, off-and-on rainy, day in Leavenworth capturing Oktoberfest. The moisture did very little to dampen the spirits though! There were German and Bavarian lasses in all their St. Pauli girl glamour, giant steins of liquid gold and brown elixir, polka music done with the enthusiasm of any rock concert, a playground area for the kids, craft vendors, authentic food and drink, keg tapping, dancing, people watching and a parade to kick it all off. It runs both Friday and Saturday on the first three weekends in October so you have plenty of options for finding time to visit (and even still time left for this year!) I captured the event with Stephanie Fry Photography for ADG Media's LeavenworthOktoberfest.com, but next year, I may just have to find some time to visit as a reveler.
