Irondequoit Celebrates Annual Oktoberfest
Irondequoit is celebrating German pride and music with their 24th annual Oktoberfest that started Friday.
The community was invited to party at Camp Eastman by Lake Ontario with the same passion and tradition as people in Munich. There was lots of music, good food and fun for the entire family.
Mike Spang, Director of Special Events in the Town of Irondequoit said, "We have the Oktoberfest principally to support Camp Eastman, to provide some support either in capital projects, and maintenance repair. The revenue for this does not impact the general fund, so it's not tax free but it doesn't hit the general fund and it's a reason for people to support."
Organizers say more than 10,000 people attended the event over the 5 days.
