Traditionally the festival known as Oktoberfest is held for 17 or 18 days leading up to the first Sunday in October but Sun City residents and visitors were treated to a little later, scaled down celebration on Oct. 13 at the Pioneer Center.
The meal was catered by The 1880 Grille and was the traditional Wienerschnitzel and Bratwurst not to mention the hefty supply of barley and hops served up with frosty tops.
The residents and their guests were also treated to some German and Polka music played by The Dumnkopf’s.
Twice a year Del Web hosts an ‘Explore Del Webb’ program where interested buyers can visit and enjoy the area for a few days before they decide to purchase a property. This year the bi-yearly visit happened to fall during the Oktoberfest activities and several of the out-of-town visitors were able to enjoy one of the many group activities Sun City offers.
