The best and wurst of Mt. Angel
Mt. Angel folks are preparing for the 11th Annual Volksfest, which is less than a month away; this year's gala takes place Friday through Sunday, March 1-3, at the Mt. Angel Festhalle.
The event, which opens at 10 a.m. each day, celebrates the community's German heritage and features food, music, dancing, games and demonstrations. The "Wurst Run" takes place at 9:30 a.m. Saturday and offers 5k and 10k options.
Volksfest organizers are seeking volunteers for a variety of tasks, including:
Bar -- pouring beer at the bar. You must have an OLCC Servers Permit or attend a short class we will be offering prior to the event;
Pepsi -- sell Pepsi products, water and Crater Lake Root Beer;
Tokens/Admission -- accepting payment at entry, wristband festival goers, and sell tokens to purchase beverages.
