St. Alphonsus Roman Catholic Church, 1429 W. Wellington Ave, hosted their annual Oktoberfest this past weekend. Crowded on Friday evening and Saturday, there were fewer attendees on Sunday following heavy showers. Lots of beer, bratwurst, and pretzels were on hand all weekend long, as well as authentic German lederhosen for sale by Europe’s Finest Imports. A large tent stage on the church’s back lot hosted Chicago 80′s cover bands Hi Infidelity on Friday, Sixteen Candles on Saturday, and the Dave Matthews cover band the Trippin’ Billies on Sunday, while an indoor stage featured German-American bands.
