Immaculate conception’s Oktoberfest
The Immaculate Conception Church in Spotswood NJ hosted their first Oktoberfest event. The event took place this Saturday, October 13, 2012, at 23 Manalapan Road, Spotswood, NJ. Audience Pleasers provided the entertainment for this event. There were 200 people at this event that enjoyed the festivities. Oktoberfest featured free food, fireworks, live entertainment, pig races, a petting zoo, prizes and giveaways and much more! Audience Pleasers provided Oktoberfest with Live entertainment, which consisted of a DJ and a German Band; the name of the band is Eddie G’s Bavarian Band. All of the attendees got a hint of the German culture by watching the band’s performance. Also, Audience Pleasers provided the stage and lighting for the live entertainment. For those who liked to have physical competition with others, Audience Pleasers was there to please their needs. Audience Pleasers provided a Sumo Wrestling competition.
Both children and adults enjoyed themselves with the petting zoo and complimented the cleanliness and appearance of the animals! All of the animals are vaccinated, and are kept up to date with annual check-ups. The cleanliness and great appearance from the animals also come from the extra attention given to them behind the scenes of feeding, bathing, grooming, and shoeing and trimming the animals’ hooves. The petting zoo consisted of a calf, a lamb, a goat and cages with rabbits, guinea pigs, chickens, and ducks.
In addition to the petting zoo, the attendees to Oktoberfest enjoyed themselves with the carousel pony rides. This was exactly like a regular carousel mechanical pony ride; however, this carousel that provided for this event included real ponies! There were 6 different ponies in many different breeds, colors, and sizes. The ponies were also given the positive compliments of cleanliness and appearance.
Watching live horse races or other kinds of animal races is fun, but when it comes to mechanical pig races, many express the same kind of joy and excitement as any real live animal races! Audience Pleasers supplied a mechanical pig race for the event, and all of the attendees found this race to very assuming and fun to participate in. The race track consisted of six lanes for six pigs to compete, and the races were done in a round robin tournament style. The winner of one round robin played against the winner of another round robin, and so forth until there was one grand champion of the pig race! These races created a friendly-competitive environment as the
the contestants cheered for their pig during the races. It was fair play and everyone was a part of the exciting and cheerful atmosphere from the pig races.
