Since 2013, the Village of Shorewood has offered Oktoberfest to its residents and surrounding community in order to offer a fun event for all aged.
Between 4-8 p.m. was considered family time with food, music and beverages. From 8 to 11:30 p.m. was a 21 and over time and the cover band the Lounge Puppets, also of Chicago, played a variety of rock music.
Village event and recreation coordinator Katie Fitzpatrick was not sure of the final count, but she was amazed at the number of people at this year’s event, which she said, was definitely over attendance from 2016.
