Windsor Heights Oktoberfest

Let's "Prost!" our Fidos by taking them to Windsor Heights' dog-friendly Oktoberfest event this Saturday! Halloween costumes for you and your Fido are encouraged with a pet costume contest starting at 3:00 p.m. The following was taken from the Windsor Heights' website:


Windsor Heights Oktoberfest blends Traditional Oktoberfest with Halloween.… Don’t Miss the FUN! 

The Windsor Heights family friendly Oktoberfest is the area's premier fall celebration with fun for children and adults.  The festival begins at 2 pm at Colby Park, located at the end of 69th Street, south of University on Saturday, October 5. 

In true Windsor Heights style, the Windsor Heights Oktoberfest has something for everyone.  From interactive inflatables and activities for children to the free performance of an award winning polka band and much more, it is a not to be missed celebration geared to all ages and members of a family. 

Combined with Halloween, this Oktoberfest invites you and your pet to dress up for fantastic costume contests.  Additionally, the perennial favorite pumpkin carving contest, where pumpkins will be available to carve, is going to show off participant's artistry.

And, don't forget to bring your appetites.  The traditional German food of brats and accompaniments will be for sale, sponsored by the Windsor Heights Police Association.  Other refreshments including beer, popcorn, potato salad and soft drinks will also be available to purchase.

The hours of Oktoberfest are 2 - 6 pm. Parking is available in the Park and around the side streets.  There is no admission to attend Oktoberfest nor parking fees.  Tickets for the inflatables will be sold for $1/each.

    Oh, I'm not sure if I'm going to make this now. The woman where I take Dylan for agility classes is having a party at her place starting at 4 p.m. and it takes me 40 minutes to get there. Since the costume contest is at 3, that doesn't really give me enough time. See you tomorrow at the pet blessing instead!

      Our plans changed so we won't be at the pet blessing.

      There weren't too many people at the pet blessing. Kind of sprinkling so we were up by the door. The woman that did the blessing was really nice and did an individual blessing for each pet. I took Kes and Kira.

    Wish I could go but it sounds like a little too much for Cooper to handle. He is still getting used to being around people and crowds, this may be too overwhelming for him.

    Sounds fun, but I am meeting a friend from Colorado in Omaha this weekend.
