Oompahfest returns

August 30, 2007

Immanuel Lutheran Church and University Student Center in conjunction with the Kansas Arts Commission will sponsor its seventh annual Oompahfest Family Fun Festival from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sept. 8 at South Park, 12th and Massachusetts streets in downtown Lawrence. The public is invited to attend.

Oompahfest offers admission, children's games, music and dancing at no charge.

Church members will sell authentic German cuisine including homemade bierocks, hot German potato salad, bratwursts, sauerkraut and homemade desserts as well as a variety of cold drinks.

Live music entertainment will be provided by Festhaus Musikanten, a German wind orchestra, and the German folk dancers group, Blautaler Schuhplattler, will perform through the festival.

All proceeds from Oompahfest will go to Lawrence Habitat for Humanity.
