Oktoberfest in Frankenmuth wraps up

FRANKENMUTH, MI (WNEM) -

"We just love Oktoberfest. We have to come here every year," said Erika Parker.

Erika Parker is not the only one who loves to relish German heritage and culture. Thousands of people made their way to Michigan's Little Bavaria for Oktoberfest.

"I came from West Germany, from Frankfurt, but my home is in the states now," said Parker.

Parker now lives just outside of Mid-Michigan. She says she loves to enjoy her roots without traveling across the globe. 

The event has authentic entertainment, food and souvenirs and of course, lots and lots of beer.  

Mark Janson put this entire energetic event on. He says the turnout couldn't have been better.

"The 28th Annual Oktoberfest has been fantastic. The weather has been tremendous. The crowds have been phenomenal," Janson told TV5.
