Bringing in the fall with Oktoberfest!

October 05, 2023 4:05 PM | Jacob Goldberg (Administrator)

To bring in the fall this year, we had our first ever Oktoberfest! While offering trolley rides all day, we partnered with the local Rotary club, Pau Hauna Lounge, Ream's Meat Market, and many other local businesses and organizations to make this happen. The weather was absolutely unbeatable, warm and sunny for all three days, and we had a good crowd to enjoy some food, beer, music, train rides, and more.

Thank you everyone who came out and everyone who partnered with us for a great event.

On the railroad side of things, we had cars 4451 and 715 running all day. Lots of happy passengers. This was the first time we have carried passengers in 4451 since the springtime.

We also had several bands playing throughout the event:

Of course this post wouldn't be complete without a picture of the Stein holding competition, where competitors had to hold a Stein full of beer at arm's length for as long as possible.

It also certainly wouldn't be Oktoberfest without beer. The bar was definitely a popular part of the event.
