The 40th Annual Oktoberfest celebration was held this weekend at Most Holy Rosary, Route 26 in Maine. Big crowds turned out for entertainment and plenty of great food.

Oktoberfest and clam chowder have become synonymous each autumn at Most Holy Rosary. Clam chowder is a featured highlight of their food menu with visitors enjoying some under the Most Holy Rosary big tent and then taking containers of the chowder home with them. Other ethnic food specialties included pierogis and halupki along with usual festival favorites like hot dogs and sauerkraut, sausage and pizza.

Oktoberfest at Most Holy Rosary always features a big bake sale.  Baked goods included blueberry and apple pies, cookies, brownies and many other treats.

Musical entertainment was featured all three days.  The group Crossfire performed on Sunday as the event wrapped-up in the afternoon.  Most Holy Rosary's Oktoberfest generally concludes the church festival season in our area.
