This past Sunday, Sept. 18, was a perfect weather day for the Wilton Kiwanis Club as it hosted its 2nd Annual Oktoberfest.
The fun event was held at the Kiwanis Pavilion at the Wilton Family Y. On hand was a band playing authentic German music, as guests socialized, and ate Bratwurst, chicken, sauerkraut, German potato salad, pretzels and more. Of course there was German beer on tap, which was enjoyed by an large crowd throughout the afternoon and evening.
“All of the profit from Oktoberfest goes to worthy youth community programs, but there is another reason why the Kiwanis invest so much of our time and resources to make it a success, says Jack McFadden, Kiwanis Club vice president. “Like our Pancake Breakfast for Memorial Day, Oktoberfest is a labor of love as a community celebration. It’s part of what makes Wilton special.”
It was also one of the first events in town of the coming election season, and with a guaranteed audience of Wilton residents and voters, several people running for office in the November election were there to shake hands, talk about town issues and campaign for votes.
