Seasonal brews, southern rock and small animals were just some of the many offerings at the Village of New Lenox Octoberfest on Saturday, Oct. 5, in the Villages Commons. 

For couples Cindy and John Laitar and Heather and Marc Morale, this wasn’t their first taste of German drinking festivities. A week prior, 4,540 miles away, the couples engaged in the rich traditions of the original Oktoberfest in Munich, Germany.
