It’s finally here!  All the time and effort we have spent preparing for Berghoff’s 26thAnnual Oktoberfest is about to pay off.  Today is the big day and I couldn’t be more excited.  Carlyn has so graciously invited me to the Opening Ceremonies, so my schedule for the day will be as follows:

  • 11:45 a.m.: Celebration begins on Federal Plaza at the festival main stage, corner of Adams & Dearborn
  • Immediately Following: VIP Reception and Luncheon in Berghoff’s Century Room
  • 11:45 a.m-2:00 p.m.: Johnny Wagner Band (festival main stage)
  • 5:00-9:00 p.m.: Maggie Speaks performs (festival main stage)

Don’t forget Thursday we will be unveiling the 45-foot brat in Federal Plaza and be selling bites to benefit our charity, Mercy Home for Boys & Girls.  Sixteen Candles will then take the stage from 5:00-9:00 p.m.

I hope to see you all there.  Come hungry, thirsty, and with those dancing pants on!
