GRAND RAPIDS, MI — What’s going on this weekend? What are you going to do?
Well, there is still time to enjoy Oktoberfest West Michigan, which takes place this weekend (Saturday, Sept. 26, 2015) at John Ball Park.
You’re bound to have a good time with all it has to offer: a large beer tent featuring varieties of Erdinger Beer as well as other authentic German beers and wines, German food, hot dogs and root beer for the kids, great German bands, and the Edelweiss Club choir.
