Oktoberfest Helps Lebanon's Ecological Park While Allowing Festive Goers Enjoy Some Fun


LEBANON, OH -- Lebanon's Centennial Park was the site for German-style music, food, 15 unique German Beers, The COSI Kids Zone, and much more this past weekend during the 9th Annual Lebanon Oktoberfest. 

Oktoberfest fashion was seen throughout Downtown Lebanon on Saturday.

The Oktoberfest is a fundraiser for the city's Miller Ecological Park. Dedicated in 2013 as Lebanon's only ecological park, this park is 97 acres with nearly three miles of trails, several gardens, native prairies, a Nature Playscape, a sledding hill, the Shawn Steinke Memorial Labyrinth, and a bird watching blind, benches, exercise features, kiosks and numerous bridges that were completed as Eagle Scout projects. 

Oktoberfest is a great way to make a new friend.

Along with eating and drinking many took to the front of the stage to dance.

Oktoberfest brings dancing to the streets in Lebanon.

The dance that got a large crowd up on their feet was the famous Chicken Dance that Lebanon's Past Mayor Amy Brewer willingly  stepped up and lead.

Over the year's the Oktoberfest has been instrumental in raising funds needed to complete projects within the park.
