will be provided with a commemorative cup ($5 each) to use throughout the day and
attendees from years past are encouraged to bring their signature Glenview Haus cups with
them, free of charge.
Oktoberfest isn’t just about beer as Chef Jeff Modica will prove with his festive Bavarian food
specialties from brats ($5), giant pretzels ($8) and a German Plate ($8) loaded with a brat,
German potato salad and sauerkraut.
While filling up on food and beer under the festival tent, event-goers can dance the polka as
the six-piece band, Die Musikmeisters, play a rousing blend of traditional German music from
11 a.m. to 11 p.m.
Families of all ages can join in on the festivities with a jump house and face painting setup
