Good beer, great food and fancy desserts were just some of the highlights of Tallahassee's Oktoberfest.

The Big Bend Elder Care Services held its annual festival at the Goodwood Museum and Gardens on Friday.

Folks of all ages got a sample of German food and Oktoberfest beer.

Music and dancing were also a part of the festivities.

Jim Croteau spoke with WCTV, "We have about 700 people who joined us tonight; good German food and desserts. A good time for everybody."

This was the Elder Care Services of the Big Bend's 13th annual Oktoberfest.

Proceeds benefited Meals on Wheels and other services for seniors.

    It would be good to have an Octoberfest on Gaines St. But there are too many things going on this weekend. Need to spread things out.

    I think a lot more more would attend if the cost was not $50 a person. If it would have been $25 a person that is more feasible in this econmy. I am from the north and all the Octoberfests were free to get in and the proceeds from the food and beer vendors were sufficient to the cause.

      so true Tina, the cost is what kept me and my friends from going. WE don't have $50.00 each for this instead we bought beer pizza etc and had a great time at home,cost all of 50.00 for this. The sad part is Big Bend helped me when a loved one ill and died
