During this traditional beer drinking and food festival a lot of typical German and Swiss dishes such as pork leg, dumplings (a kind of potato balls), roasted pork, Salzbretzel and much more will be offered.
There is also an extensive range of German beers available including original Oktoberfest beer.
These beers are of course served in traditional big mugs.

The church proclaimed the month of September as the month of the Bible.
In Sosúa (Charamicos) several activities took place which included handing out free Bibles.
Furthermore, students read out the Bible from cover to cover.
The idea is that people do not need to approach each other with guns but with texts from the Bible.
The Bible is a more effective weapon than a pistol or rifle.
Friday September 25 the Bible month ended at 4 pm with a march through the neighborhoods.
September is bible month
One of the organizers of this action 'The Bible as a weapon' is pastor Bernando of Sosúa.
