PINELLAS PARK - The 2014 edition of one of Tampa Bay’s most authentic Oktoberfests kicks off Friday and Saturday, Sept. 26 and 27, 6:30 to 11 p.m., at the German American Club, 8098 66th St. N. in Pinellas Park.

The German American Friendship Society of Pinellas, which organizes the event every year, is gearing up for the festivities. Once again, Pinellas Park’s Oktoberfest will deliver three weekends of food, dance and German-themed entertainment, explained Bob Courtney, the society’s first vice president.

“It’s a time to come to an ethnic celebration, to sit down and talk to people to have some good food and good beer - or a glass of wine if you prefer - enjoy good music and spend a couple of hours and go home happy,” he said.

Oktoberfest runs Fridays and Saturdays, Oct. 3-4 and 10-11, 6:30 to 11 p.m. The annual and traditional event is important for community relations, Courtney said.

“It’s important for expanding the German American Club throughout Pinellas and Pinellas County,” he said.

As always, the event will feature the Oktoberfest Village, authentic German food and sweets, imported German beer, live oompah music, dancing, German vendors and nightly raffles. Parking is free and an ATM will available on site, in case the savory food tempts you to more servings.
