Beer, Alpine hats and music mark celebration of Bavarian culture

Landmark Village residents and team members recently harnessed the festive spirit of Bavarian culture when they celebrated Oktoberfest at the Sarnia seniors living community.

To create their own version of the annual beer festival, residents and team members had traditional Alpine hats – sometimes called Tyrolean hats – to wear during the event.

The hats were made out of wrapping paper, and the residents folded the paper to create their own for the celebration, notes Landmark Village fun co-ordinator Brent Hart.

After the hats were completed, team members put on Oktoberfest music and residents were served German beer and sausage rolls.

Oktoberfest is an annual celebration of beer and Bavarian culture that dates back to the early 1800s in Munich. Oktoberfest celebrations are held every autumn across the globe and feature music, food and, of course, beer.

Due to restrictions in place to keep everyone safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, attendees at the Landmark Village Oktoberfest event wore face masks and practised social distancing.

Brent says residents enjoyed the Landmark Village Oktoberfest celebration in the safe environment that was provided.

“The men especially enjoyed the beer, and it was great to see so many residents together safely social distanced and enjoying some fun,” he says.
