Mandeville La: Oktoberfest at the Mandeville Trailhead, Oct 16 & 17

By
Real Estate Agent with Amy Jones Photo

I pass Mandeville City Hall almost daily. They have an electronic message board with important messages or upcoming events posted. This week sign showed Oktoberfest- Mandeville Trailhead. I've been living in Mandeville for over 15 yrs, and have lived nearby my entire life. I've never heard of an Oktoberfest Celebration in Mandeville! I looked into it today. It looks like a very interesting event! Lots of good causes will be supported. Mandeville has another fun event for locals. I hope it is the first year of a long standing event.

I live fairly close to the Trailhead. Many times I can hear the music from the bands at the Trailhead. I checked the lineup. If I hadn't have know about this event, I would have certainly wondered what was going on- Yodeling and Polka music!  

For more information about events at the Trailhead visit MandevilleTrailhead.com events .

I'm not sure if we'll be attending. With so many great options- I don't have the time to go to everything! We might try to stop by and check it out.

Sometimes the work thing that I do gets in the way! Haha- It's a good thing.

Amy ~ Looks like Mandeville La: Oktoberfest at the Mandeville Trailhead, Oct 16 & 17 is going to be lots of fun and so much to do. German beer and brats are always good.

It all sounded good up until the polka!  I have a tendency to run away when some one shows up with an accordion!

Robert, My husband made the call not to attend! Some friends stopped by my house after they went. sounds like it was a successful event!

Rebecca, Yes! It definitely sounded festive. There's a festival for everyone.

Kryste, I think that Oregon and La both have gorgeous October weather. I hope you are able to get out and enjoy some of your local festivals.
