Prost! Decked out in their best lederhosen and dirndls, people came from all over the Corridor for the 21st annual Northside Oktoberfest. Brewfest featured craft brews from more than 50 breweries and beer games like Hammer Schlagen and Beer Slide, as well as food from local vendors and an array of live music. Sodafest had kid-friendly drinks and games, an inflatable slide and dancing. All proceeds from Brewfest and Sodafest benefit local nonprofits.
