While Munich concluded its biggest Volksfest earlier this month, Lockport partook in the same at the Public Landing Oct. 15.

Celebrating its first Oktoberfest, the restaurant organized a magnificent event with German delicacies and authentic folk music.

“There is always something fun and exciting here,” said Anita Donnelly, manager at the Public Landing. “Our entire team gets together to brainstorm and plan these events and it is as exciting for us, as it is for the guests. With that in mind, we decided to host our very own Oktoberfest.”
