Apple Shots #7: Octoberfest 2004 and 2005 in Appleton, Wisconsin

Octoberfest in Appleton is one of America's best fall festivals. Typically held on the last Saturday in September (see Octoberfest Online for details), it consistently draws over 100,000 people for this high-class event. Outstanding bands andother performers offer free entertainment at several locations, while hundreds of booths line College Avenue offering food, goods, fun, information, and more. Many dozens of fine arts and crafts displays are packed on the main lawn of the Lawrence University campus along College Avenue. You can even find beverages (rumor has it that beer is offered, but I haven't seen drunks at this family oriented event). You never know what you'll see at Octoberfest, but now I'd like to share a few of the things that I saw in 2004 and 2005. Copyright Jeff Lindsay, 2004-2005.
