I love fall and I love beer, so it seems surprising that I’ve never been to the annual Oktoberfest celebration on Court Avenue in downtown Des Moines.
I remedied that last night. Friday was the first of the two-day celebration featuring live polka music and dancing, food, beer, and folks in German costumes. The celebration continues today, starting at 4 p.m. and running until 1 a.m.
I was surprised to see the number of really good dancers until I saw that many of them were members of the Polka Club of Iowa. Who knew?
