#MontroseOktoberfest CBS LA Gives Big Shout-Out to our Oktoberfest
CBS Los Angeles named the Montrose-Verdugo City Chamber of Commerce Oktoberfest one of 2014’s Best Places to Celebrate Oktoberfest in Los Angeles. How great is that?! Here is what they had to say: “On Oct. 4, from noon and 11 p.m., the small town of Montrose comes alive for its annual outdoor street festival to celebrate Oktoberfest. Sponsored by the Montrose-Verdugo City Chamber of Commerce, the Montrose Oktoberfest festivities comprise one of the largest outdoor events in Southern California celebrating the Bavarian tradition. And, as a Montrose institution for 36 years, families come out to take part in this large event that brings people from far and wide to take part in the fun. Everything from entertainment by the German American Brass Band and D’oberlander Dancers to carnival rides for kids and bingo games for the older generation will be on hand as well. In typical fashion, the event featured tasty German food including bratwurst, sauerkraut, strudel and other delicious samples of Bavarian cuisine. If that wasn’t enough, taste the authentic German beer, take part in the hot dog eating contest or the fire fighter dunk tank and grab souvenirs.”
