An annual salute to German culture returned to Springfield Thursday night.
The Mighty Oktoberfest on Fort Street held a kick-off celebration at the Student Prince and Fort Cafe Thursday evening. This authentic Oktoberfest event features traditional food, drink and music.
Mayor Domenic Sarno officially kicked off the celebration by tapping the first keg. Sarno told 22News, “We’re also raising funds for our beloved Shriner’s Hospital so come on to Downtown Springfield. You’re going to have a great time.”
