Last year, when Matt and I went to the Mt. Angel Oktoberfest, we said that the next year we would eat even more... and I think we accomplished that goal. The food there is consistently delicious and was actually fantastic relative to a few duds in terms of food at events this past summer (carnival food is so hit and miss). We started out the weekend of food by heading over to Oktoberfest Friday night where we indulged ourselves with bratwurst and sauerkraut and then apple strudle for dessert. I didn't want to mess with taking night photos so no photos of Friday, but here are the Sunday highlights:
Watching the German dancing.
The baker's dance.
Posing in front of the Harvest Monument.
Checking out the arts and crafts booths... similar to last year's photo.
Tourist shot in front of the entrance.
First food stop on Sunday... baked potatoes with everything.
Next came the corn of the cob.
This was really delish, but I always hate how it gets stuck in your teeth. I forgot to take a photo, but it was accompanied by marionberry lemonade.
Matt got the marionberry pie with ice cream...
... and then strawberry shortcake with ice cream, whipped cream, chocolate, strawberries and a cherry.
We also ate some apple fritters...
...with mango lemonade.
A nice and enthusiastic couple took this lovely shot.
At the car show.... and who's in the backseat?

Taking a little break.
I had to get a full length shot of this cute dress, which I snagged at Loyale's sample sale that I found out about through Unruly Things blog. And Joanna says it's the new trend... legs! This is paired with the Anthropologie Sandy Stretch Belt (I had to punch a new hole in it because the small was too big) and Me Too shoes.
Another shot of the hubby.
Sunset.... goodbye, Oktoberfest! Until next year...
