Charles Schwenk of Green Bay was one of thousands on hand Sept. 17 celebrating Oktoberfest at the Lorelei Inn on Webster Avenue. The German restaurant’s 16th annual celebration is now a two-day event that featured warm pretzels, more than 20 kinds of cold beer on tap and live music from local bands The Cougars and Big Mouth. Owner Dave Hack said the festival peaked in 2019 and continued on a limited scale through Covid. This year, it was almost back to pre-pandemic levels. “It’s becoming a real Oktoberfest,” he said.
