Amana Colonies - Homestead
Occurs annually at the beginning of October
The Amana Colonies are always fun, but Oktoberfest is the most fun! The weather is still nice, and it's fun to just walk up and down the main drag in Homestead and see what's going on. Don't miss eating a brat (we like the ones at Millstream Brewery that are cooked in Oktoberfest Ale) and there's a little stand that sells fresh potato pancakes that are sooo yummy! We also like to stop into the bakery for a strudel or Dutch Letter. And there's a band called Becky and the Ivanhoe Dutchmen that sings tons of German songs and some of them are HILARIOUS -- worth sitting around and enjoying!
