  10. Pace September 9, 2015 at 11:14 pm #

    Honestly can’t choose just one thing, but 1) weiner dog races, because obviously, and 2) beer. There really doesn’t need to be much thought beyond that.

  11. Kira September 10, 2015 at 8:39 am #

    I’ve never been able to go to an Oktoberfest yet, so I would be super excited to make it to this one! I’d especially love getting to try the different kinds of beer and cider, plus wiener dog races makes me smile just thinking about it!!

  12. Tanya September 10, 2015 at 8:49 am #

  40. Julie September 10, 2015 at 6:56 pm #

    I’ve been going ever since I was a little girl! My mom would braid my blonde hair & dress me up in a little dirndl. I would love to keep the tradition going now that I’m not little anymore.

  41. Eliz September 10, 2015 at 8:11 pm #

    OMG … I’ve been wanting to go to this Mt Angel place to experience German heritage tradition, as I’ve been promised this is the best place in Oregon to do so! I’m missing good kraut & polka! I promise to dance! And not just the chicken dance!

  42. Katie September 10, 2015 at 8:11 pm #

  64. Destiny September 11, 2015 at 6:47 pm #

    Would be a nice treat for a student who just worked her tail off to pass yet another full-time school term all the while working full-time and dealing with an elderly parent who lives with her and has dementia and suffered a stroke during the final part of her summer term…

  65. Lynn September 11, 2015 at 6:57 pm #

  71. Sheri September 12, 2015 at 1:15 pm #

    I have heard German beer is the best,
    Of this I would like to taste test,
    but Germany ‘ s too far
    To drink beer at a bar,
    So perhaps the Oktoberfest?!

  72. Carolyn September 12, 2015 at 3:43 pm #

    Much of my family history is in the Silverton area. Would love to take my dad to this.

  73. Silvia September 12, 2015 at 9:05 pm #

    I am so looking forward to the 50th anniversary of the Mt Angel Octoberfest. I’ve been waiting anxiously for this trip for months. The man I fell in love with (Larry) recently moved to New York state for work and he’s flying back to Oregon to meet me for Octoberfest. I’ve got my beer wench costume all ready to go and I can’t wait! Winning tickets would make the trip even sweeter!!!

  79. Marshall September 13, 2015 at 10:18 pm #
