People Will Be Showing Their Weiners On the Streets of Loves Park

I’m sorry my inner 12-year-old boy wants to laugh about weiner races, but seriously, The Running of the Weiners at the German Society of Rockford’s Oktoberfest next weekend is something I don’t think anyone will want to miss. Talk about cuteness overload!

If you love all things German and beer, make plans to bring the family to Rockford’s Oktoberfest at the Loves Park City Hall Grounds on Friday October, 6 and Saturday, October 7.

This fun event put on by the German Society of Rockford features live German folk and polka music, folk dance performances, lots of authentic German food and beer, kids activities, a “bier barrel race”, and the ever-famous “running of the weiners”.
