BALDWINSVILLE, N.Y. -- Oktoberfest brings the Baldwinsville community together for drinks, food and fun. The committee worked hand in hand with the fire department to make the event possible.
There was beer, German food and music, as well as an old tradition for fire departments, a push ball tournament. The junior team took home the victory.
Organizers are hoping the event will bring the community together, but also put the local fire department in the spotlight.
"We saw this also as an opportunity for the fire department to showcase itself and really show the public what it is all about. So hopefully this will go a long way in recruitment efforts as well," said Baldwinsville Mayor Joe Saraceni.
Organizers hope to make the festival an annual event.
