2012 Concordia Oktoberfest One of the Biggest, Best in History

October 9, 2012

Apparently, word has gotten out that Concordia's Oktoberfest is a blast - just ask the crazy amount of people who showed up on Saturday, Oct. 6! In the span of four hours that day, around 1200 people (around 300 of whom were kids) walked through the front doors of Concordia's Haven I retirement apartment building in Cabot.

As if the hayrides, kids activities, rummage/bake sales, German food, band and beer weren't enough, the night was capped off with a spectacular Zambelli Fireworks display. We wish we had video, because the finale rivaled any show we've seen before! Amidst all that, some people even took advantage of the flu shots and blood pressure clinic offered by Concordia Visiting Nurses.

Despite hosting possibly the largest amount of people in the event's history, the food lines never got too long, the kids never got bored and the 70+ volunteers never quit smiling. Special thanks to those who helped make the day a success, and to all the lovely people who made the trip to Cabot that day!

Now enjoy a few pictures from the event (below), many of which were taken by our guest photographer for the day, Cabot Admissions Coordinator Amanda Sanner!
