Melina and the Oompahs will provide polka tunes while dressed in customary costumes and DJ Holzmeister will be playing Bavarian tracks, including pop songs from Schlager to Neue Deutsche Welle. Get ready to bust a move on that cobblestone dancefloor!

Savory bites and, of course, steins filled to the brim with beer will be served by The Lighthouse. Lederhosen-wearing servers will be dishing out pretzels, brats (veggie brats, too!), sauerkraut and draft brews. And Creatively Wild Art Studio is supplying crafts for the kiddies (and big kids at heart) in the form of coloring books.
