Totem Pole Playhouse, located in Caledonia State Park between Gettysburg and Chambersburg, will celebrate Oktoberfest from 1 to 5 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 25, with a live German band, German food and dance contest. Of special note will be a Costume Shop Treasures sale at the rear of the theatre with endless possibilities. Vintage clothing, men’s and women’s clothes, shoes, potential Halloween costume pieces, purses and shawls. Costume donations will not be received.
Providing music will be the Blaskapelle Shippensburg German Band, organized in 1985 as a typical German brass band. They are all volunteers, dedicated to bringing good music, good fun and Gemütlichkeit ( a German word used to convey the idea of a state or feeling of warmth, friendliness and good cheer).
