Many hundreds of Greater New Milford area and regional residents made sure last month to include the Arion Singing Society's traditional Oktoberfest celebration on their "must do" calendar.

The German heritage singing society's 13th annual party was hosted on Sept. 3 and 4 at Arion's home at 411 Danbury Road (Route 7) in southern New Milford.

Among the highlights were performances by the Mountaintops, Die Schlauberger, Bud Gramer & His Melodies and, of course, the Alpenland Dancers.
