The intersection of Walnuss and Zweite strabes roared with a little more than polka music Saturday as Oktoberfest kicked off its final day with the Oktoberfest Parade.
Crowds lined up early and packed the intersection at Walnut and Second streets to see 80 groups and floats from politicians to musicians to gymnasts take part in the parade.
Rita Jones of Seymour sat with her granddaughter, Brandy Jones from out of town, to watch their great-granddaughter and niece in the parade.
“I think it’s great,” Rita said. “More people are here than in past years.”
Phylis and Ron Frith of Seymour also lined up early to watch their granddaughter in the parade. They said they left their home at Freeman Field at 11 a.m. to make sure they got to the parade early enough to find a good seat.
