Dozens of Kilgoreites and those from surrounding towns made their way to the Avalon Faire grounds last weekend for a day of Oktoberfest fun. From 12 p.m. to 9 p.m., guests enjoyed traditional food, showed off their lederhosen and dirndls, gave their all in games and contests and, of course, enjoyed many steins of frosty craft beer. According to Adi DiShion, Avalon Faire founder, event staff served 18 kegs of beer, 60 pounds of brats, 50 pounds of smoked sausages, 80 pounds of roasted pork, 60 pounds of chicken, 40 pounds of sauerkraut, 50 pounds of German potato salad, 50 pounds of red cabbage, 9 cases of water, 10 cases of soda and 120 commemorative mugs. The fun lasted all day, according to DiShion, who said some guests enjoyed the festivities until event staff turned off the lights at 9.
