2019 Old Settlers Oktoberfest coverage (VIDEO & PHOTOS)

The 9th annual Old Settlers Oktoberfest took place amid perfect weather at Old Settlers Park in Paddock Lake Saturday afternoon and evening.

The free admission event features a wide range of activities including German food, German music and dancing, the Dachshund Dash dog races, a car show, a stein hoisting competition and children’s activities.

Proceeds from the event go toward building a permanent band shell in the park.
