Octoberfest on a budget…..
You are invited to: OKTOBERFESTHAUS
The Kitchener Oktoberfest Lions Club is offering free tickets to residents of the Olde Towne Neighbourhood or the Mt. Hope – Breithaupt Park Neighbourhood.
The Kitchener Oktoberfest Lions Club, for 18 years, had our Oktoberfest Haus Festhall in the Tent on Frederick Street (outside Crabby Joe’s) in Downtown Kitchener. We now have to leave because ION (the new LRT) will be installed on this section of roadway. But we are pleased to announce we have a new Festhall location – we are going to the Kitchener Market – the Upper Level. We believe this location will provide us with a comfortable and attractive venue with a genuine Festhall “feel”. We want to make this the Downtown’s Festhall, and more importantly, your local and convenient community Festhall. The capacity of our Hall is 475 people.
As a new Festhall we recognize that we need to establish ourselves in the community’s mind. We’ve decided to invite the six Neighbourhoods around the Festhall as our Guests (free). In this regard, we would like you to join us for “Meet Your Neighbours Night” on Saturday, October 15th , from 7:00pm to 1:00am. (Regular admission is $15). We will have a number of restaurants open to serve you, including “Every Day Gourmet”, “Bolero Pizza and Pasta House”, and “The Apple Fritter”. We have a great band lined up, lots of beer, German Dancers, and of course, an extensive schnapps bar.
We plan on having a lot of fun, including a polka and chicken dance contest. To reserve free tickets for yourselves, your family and friends, email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org indicating the number of tickets, and that you are with the Olde Towne or Mt. Hope – Breithaupt Park neighbourhood. Tickets are on a first come-first served basis. I will deliver the tickets at the end of September.
In closing I want you to know that all money made by the Kitchener Oktoberfest Lions Club at the Festhall is donated to the St. Mary’s Hospital Foundation, the Grand River Hospital Foundation, Guide Dogs Canada and a number of local Lions charities. We are all unpaid Volunteers. We hope you can join us.
Thank you, Terry Boutilier, Kitchener-Oktoberfest Lions Club
