We might be biased, but last years 34th Oktoberfest was amazeballs. The amount of party goers that came dressed in costume was unprecedented and the atmosphere was to match.
This Saturday 2 November 2019 we’re hoping the 35th Oktoberfest will only be bigger and better. Emu Park Lions Club, local businesses including Young’s Bus Services and community organisations have once again put together an Oktoberfest event which is not to be missed.
Traditionally Oktoberfest is the world’s largest beer festival held annually in Munich, Bavaria and Germany that runs for almost 18 days with over 6 million people in participation. The event is an important part of Bavarian culture and has been since 1810. Things won’t be that extreme here in Emu Park but the event will still be an “must-not-miss extravaganza”.
Bus services to Emu Park will be operating to the standard Route 20 Saturday timetable with a few late services available too.
3 services to Rockhampton (via Zilzie & Yeppoon) at 10.30pm.
extra services from Zilzie at 3pm and 5.00pm
extra services to Yeppoon at 9.30pm and 9.45pm
extra services to Zilzie at 9.10pm and 9.40pm
The confirmed pick up and drop down points for Zilzie are;
1. Fire Brigade on Hartley Street
2. Old Zilzie store cnr Hartley & Claude Sts & Svendsen’s Rd
3. Golf Clubhouse in Monaco Drive
Swap the car for your dancing shoes and immerse yourself in Bavarian culture. We’ll get you home safely so you can enjoy the traditional Bavarian folk dancing, cowbells, yodelling and plenty of sing-along polka hits. Food at Oktoberfest will include traditional German potato pancakes German sausages, sauerkraut & potato salad German and other imported beers and so much more.
