Oktoberfest at the lake was brats, beer, music, more food and good company! Above are the musicians. To the upper right is maestro at the grill, John, who organized the whole evening. Chanda, Gary and Ricki, and Jason helped him pull it all together. Thank you to everyone who contributed homemade delicacies and provided favorite tunes! Prost! Translation: Cheers!

The first event off the dam was cancelled one weekend, but the Tom Bush fireworks the next weekend got the rain.
Photos thanks to Sherri Durban, who was across the lake, and another photographer under the show in Tom's yard!
The Boat Parade, complete with prizes, was a great way to kick off July festivities:
