With the American German Club of the Palm Beaches’ 42nd Annual Oktoberfest creeping up fast, we thought this would be the perfect time to take a look at the third annual Miss Oktoberfest pageant held Aug. 15.
Eleven contestants vied for the crown in front of a packed house, and in the end, it was Delray Beach resident Christine Haycook who was named Miss Oktoberfest 2015. Congratulations to Christine and all the contestants, including first runner-up and People’s Choice Verna Sixt and second runner-up Julie Reinoso.
Attendees enjoyed the pageant, coronation dinner and live music by the authentic German band Alpine Express. Also featured were dance performances by the Auerhahn Schuhplattler and the Volkstanz Gruppe and the club’s annual stein-lifting competition.
This year’s Oktoberfest will run Oct. 9, 10, 11 and 16, 17, 18.
