Oktoberfest celebration

The Eintracht Männerchor members prepare to tap the keg at a past Oktoberfest celebration. Leading the parade are, from left, Hans Kraus, Dan Reiber and John McCormick. They will keep the tradition alive with another annual celebration Sept. 19.

The Eintracht Männerchor will host a scaled-down version of its annual Oktoberfest this year.

The event is planned for 1 to 10 p.m. Sept. 18 at the Eintracht Picnic Grounds at 586 McKee Crossing Road in Neshannock Township.

Admission and parking are free.

German food — Bratwurst, sauerkraut, German potato salad, soft pretzels and hot dogs will be the featured fare — and beer will be available for purchase throughout the day.

Entertainment will be provided by German bands with intermittent performances by the Männerchor singers.

The John Tarasut Band will perform from 2 to 5 p.m. and The Barrons will take the stage from 6 to 10 p.m.
