The Devon Connecticut Rotary Club ran the Milford Oktoberfest at Fowler Field yesterday. The highly successful all day Oktoberfest event drew large crowds (estimated at around 2,000 attendees) included a German Bier Garden (8 different specialty kinds) plus great American and German food, musical entertainment by the Rumrunners and Hit List as well as a Bavarian Dance Troupe performing to live German music all topped off by a bratwurst eating contest!
People were having fun, eating, spending money, drinking some beer, spending some more money, enjoying the great weather, dancing, spending some more money and really enjoying themselves. The crowd was even more generous once they learned that the Devon Rotary Club has contributed over $1 million to the Milford.
This was a large scale event put on by a mid-sized Rotary Club. Besides having all ‘hands on deck’ by the Devon members, the club enlisted the support of many dedicated volunteers. The club and all of the volunteers have a great deal to be proud of!!!
Congratulations Devon Rotary!!!
