Oktoberfest celebration welcomes fall

By Airman 1st Class Kaylee Dubois 633rd Air Base Wing Public Affairs

The 733rd Mission Support Group hosted the annual Oktoberfest celebration at Joint Base Langley-Eustis, Va., Sept. 22, 2017.

A traditional "Oompah" band, The Happy Dutchmen, performed for attendees, playing songs like "Edelweis," "Schitzelbank" and "Ein Prosit." To honor Oktoberfest traditions, the event’s menu included beer, bratwurst, chicken and sauerkraut. 

The event also included a "Kinderfest" fall festival for children, featuring a bounce house, hay ride, balloon animals and face painting. 

More than just a festival for drinking in Germany, Oktoberfest is a celebration of the beginning of fall for everyone to enjoy.
