Chippewa Falls (WQOW) – Put on your lederhosen and grab a stein, Oktoberfest is back in Chippewa Falls.
The annual celebration has live music, kids’ games and activities, contests and of course, lots of German food and drinks.
Oktoberfest also gives back some of its proceeds to Lions Clubs in the area, which provide volunteer work to communities.
Lake Wissota Lions member, Dave Presher, said Oktoberfest is a great way to get to know his neighbors, and for the club to grow its efforts.
“Those proceeds will go back into the Lake Wissota Lions Club, where that money can be distributed out for different events around the Lake Wissota or Chippewa Valley area,” Presher said. “So it’s a fun, easy way as a fundraiser to make us some money and return back to the community.”
Oktoberfest continues through Sunday at the Northern Wisconsin State Fairgrounds.
