The 2011 Hague Oktoberfest celebration will kick off at noon Sept. 24 when the award-winning Fritz’s Polka Band from Verona takes the stage for an afternoon of great music.
continued The fun and games will end at 5 p.m., but you’ll want to extend your day with dinner at one of the many local restaurants. The Hague Firehouse Restaurant is popular for its friendly atmosphere with Chef Rob Riddle. Next door to the Firehouse is the Uptown Restaurant where owner Lauren Parlin serves a fixed menu of exquisitely prepared farm-fresh ingredients served family-style in one of Hague’s historic buildings. These and other standout restaurants in Hague will no doubt surprise many visitors to the area.
To wrap up Oktoberfest weekend, the Rev. Bruce Tamlin of Silver Bay will preside over a non-denominational service on Sunday morning under the tent. There will be a fellowship hour with refreshments after the service. The beauty and serenity of the lake and the great fellowship will no doubt lift the spirits and this is a great way to spend a little more time with the friendly residents of Hague.
The festivities will happen rain or shine under the tents in the Hague Park. There's plenty of free parking and everything is in walking distance for a weekend of Fall Fun in Hague.
Hague Oktoberfest is sponsored by the Town and businesses of Hague. Look for Oktoberfest weekend specials for lodging, restaurants, and stores in local papers and on the Oktoberfest website at http://www.visithague.com/Oktoberfest.htm.
