There were plenty of “oom-pah-pahs” and lots of beer at the first Oktoberfest held in Buffalo this past Saturday.  The beer flowed freely in the heart of downtown at Crazy Woman Square as twenty-two home beer brewers showcased their products in a beer brewing contest, with plenty of samples on hand for those brewski aficionados.

Buffalo home brewer Harv Zegstroo says home brewing is all about flavor, but price plays a pretty important part too.

But the Oktoberfest wasn’t all about beer; there were plenty of other activities to keep the event family friendly.  There was a costumed bicycle parade called “Tour de Lure” sponsored by the Sports Lure; a bison meat cook-off; a poker run and plenty of kids’ games and lots of music.

Buffalo Chamber of Commerce Director Angela Jarvis said it was a little bit of fun for everyone.

Traditionally in Germany, Oktoberfest is held during the last week of September and the first week of October.
