Oom-pah-pah was heard in Cotati Plaza on Saturday, as people danced and lifted their steins to Oktoberfest, a Cotati Chamber of Commerce event. People of all ages danced to Karl Lebherz's Bavarian band.
Lots of Daschund "weiner dogs" showed up with their owners. Some had a hard time figuring out the races or what the fuss was all about and preferred to relax and sip from water bowls dotted here and there.
One-year-old "Greta" made it into the semi-finals but "Rosie" got scared and didn't run. Rosie's owner, Lisa Roberts, didn't mind. "It was her first time," she said with a chuckle. "She didn't know what to do."
A few women showed up dressed as beer maidens. Among them were three roommates seen in our photo gallery.
