(Fort McMurray, AB, October 15, 2017) - The second annual Oktoberfest presented by Don Scott McMurray Law Office lifted steins with community members on October 14, 2017.

Oktoberfest, which is marked around the world as a celebration of Bavarian culture, returned in 2017 and sold out once again after the tremendously successful inaugural sold out event in 2016. The one night only event featured live music with renowned Canadian polka band The Western Senators, as well as German-inspired food and a variety of beer, including offerings from Wood Buffalo Brewing Co, a popular local brewery.

“For the second year in a row, community members had the opportunity to join in a celebration of Oktoberfest,” said Rachel Orser, Interim Chief Executive Officer of the Regional Recreation Corporation of Wood Buffalo. “Thanks to our partners at Don Scott McMurray Law Office and Wood Buffalo Brewing Co, our guests had the opportunity to enjoy a fun-filled evening of German food, beer and culture, including contests for best costume and stein holding. We would like to thank our partners and all of our guests for celebrating Oktoberfest with us again this year!”
