Oktoberfest

The Deutsches Haus has been its current location since 1928. Its roots go back to the mid-nineteenth century, however, as a social aid organization for German immigrants to the area. It later evolved into more of a cultural preservation organization. This is the last year the Deutsches Haus will be in its current spot, as it has to make way for the big LSU/VA hospital project. They promise to be back next year, somewhere else in the city. So, this means this is the last Oktoberfest at the historic Deutsches Haus. It has been going on all month, but this is the last weekend. Today (Friday) from 4pm-midnight, and tomorrow (Saturday) from 1pm-midnight. Mmmm. Cabbage rolls, German potato salad, sausages, beer, schnapps!
