Oktoberfest festivities continued at the southside fest grounds Monday.

Festers got a taste of German heritage at the Lederhosen Luncheon Monday afternoon.

They enjoyed brats and pork sandwiches, German potato salad and a German chocolate brownie.

It's a little taste of the traditional Oktoberfest celebration. "Everybody comes dressed up, they come getting ready to eat lunch and listen to a great band that we have from New Ulm that come dressed up in the Lederhosen and Dirndl, and it's just a comradere event that we give to the local community to get a little bit of that German heritage," said Angie Coenen.
