Admission: $8.00 per person.

The parking area is secured and lit and there is a free shuttle bus directly to the admission tent. The price is $10 on Friday and Saturday, and FREE on Sunday! All proceeds from the parking benefit Our Lady of Grace.

Opening Parade: The opening parade will be held on Friday at 7:00 p.m. The parade features the Muenchner Kindl, Munich Child, symbol of the city of Munich which leads the opening parade of the Munich Oktoberfest. The child is dressed in brown monk's garb with golden stripes, similar to that of the Benedictine order, founders of the city.

Continuous Entertainment: The "Enzian Volkstanzgruppe", the Bavarian dance group of the Delaware Saengerbund, will entertain at intervals during the festival. They perform in the colorful "Tracht" - the traditional costume patterned after the distinctive style of Miesbach in Bavaria. The men wear "Lederhosen" - buck skin leather pants - the women a "Dirndl" - a dress consisting of several parts: skirt, blouse, vest, apron, shawl, completed with a special hat.

When the EVTG is not dancing, German music is provided by the band featured above. Friday & Saturday night and Sunday afternoon. Heidi and Heimat Echo will play for your enjoyment Saturday afternoon.

Food: German specialties include grilled Bratwurst (pork sausage), Weisswuurst (veal sausage), Frankfurters, BBQ chicken, pretzels and "Rollmops", a marinated herring served with rye bread. Potato salad and sauerkraut are made in the Delaware Saengerbund kitchen by the Ladies organization. A variety of Torten and traditional plum cake are the tempting sweet fare.

Imported Gifts and Souvenirs: Oktoberfest souvenirs and Bavarian specialty clothes are available in a great variety.

Amusement Rides: Included in the admission price are unlimited free amusement rides. Midway games set up by the amusement company do cost extra.
