Week two of Oktoberfest
NEW ULM —
New Ulm traditionally hosts one of the nation’s top Oktoberfest celebrations, but COVID has forced restrictions on some events. There is still fun to be had, however.
Green Mill hosted live music from Crista Bohlmann on the patio to kick off the weekend. Bohlmann and several guests got into the Oktoberfest spirit by wearing festive hats. Bohlmann sang a variety of music ranging from The Beatles to Tanya Tucker, but she also slipped a few German songs. She led the patio in a performance of “Ein Prosit.”
Oktoberfest activities will continue Saturday with the return of the Craft & Vendor Fair from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on 1st Street North between Broadway and Minnesota Street.
Best Western Plus will host live music starting with Leon Olson & Dane’s Dutchman from Noon to 4:30 p.m. in the Conference Center. The Wendinger Band will play the Conference Center from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Peter Klug will play the Green Mill patio from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m.
