SPARTA, NJ — The Lake Mohawk Country Club hosted their third annual Oktoberfest. The weather could not have been better for the crowds that gathered on the boardwalk and on Beach 1 on Sunday. 

A band set the atmosphere as people enjoyed traditional German food and beer. Many simply enjoyed the chance to relax outdoors with friends and neighbors at tables set up on Beach 1. 

Sparta High School German language students sang five traditional German songs.
