Best to Wurst: Octoberfest returns to Lowell with German food, entertainment | News, Sports, Jobs Thu, 23 Sep 2021 04:05:09 +0000

LOWELL – Lowell’s Octoberfest is back this year with German food, games and entertainment.

This is the 45th year of the event to be held October 2-3 on Buell Island in Lowell.

Event committee chair Josh Harris said it’s been a tough year to get people’s help.

“If anyone wants to help he can contact me (740-350-3302),” he said.

They want the festival to continue with the participation of different local bands, such as the Fort Frye Band Boosters and the Buckeye Allstars, and thousands of people are attending, he added.

“They come for the German potato salad. We are doing the chicken outside on a roasting pan and we will be doing about 1,000 this year ”, Harris said.

The main shelter will be the hub of all German food with kielbasa, grilled bratwurst, corned beef reuben and sauerkraut. Whole and a half chickens will be sold, along with barbecue chicken and sautéed vegetables.

Harris said if someone feels uncomfortable with the crowd but still wants German food, people can call him and he will bring his order to his car. Masks are not mandatory to attend.

The event is cash only, he added.

In addition to food, there will be a flea market and craft stalls, Pampered Pet Petting Farm, children’s games, beer garden and raffle. The draw is $ 1 per chance or six for $ 5 with the 5 p.m. draw on October 3.

Harris said if anyone wants to be a flea market vendor, contact them or the Octoberfest Facebook page.

“We will also have rides and a train that will go around the island”, Harris said. “We will have an inflatable for children and entertainment.”

A parade will take place at 10 a.m. on October 2 and form in block 100 of Cats Creek Road, he said.

Something different this year is a color race and cornhole tournament through the Buckeye Allstars. The cornhole tournament costs $ 50 per team.

Kerri Lewis, owner of The Gym Factory, has so far said no one has entered the colors race.

“And only one team wanted to participate in the cornhole tournament”, she said.

This is the Allstars’ first time participating in Octoberfest, although they have already hosted a cornhole tournament at the Beverly-Waterford Homecoming.

“We all posted on Facebook”, Lewis said. “I find that very strange. Maybe it’s because of COVID (that people aren’t signing up). It’s a bit bad. It would be a good thing every year.

She said she wasn’t sure if they were going to run the Color Race as they would have to print T-shirts and time was running out.

“People can still register for the cornhole tournament until September 30,” she said. Interested teams can reach Lewis at 740-984-8060 via the Gym Factory Facebook page.

German streamers shocked after guitar stolen during live broadcast Tue, 21 Sep 2021 20:16:46 +0000

Two German Twitch streamers were busy serenading passersby when a stranger grabbed something pretty important to them – but their reaction wasn’t what everyone expected.

Twitch is a beehive for all kinds of content. From users broadcasting their trips abroad to sharing their hijinks with friends in online games, it’s safe to say that the platform has something for everyone.

Of all the categories on Twitch, IRL streams tend to produce the most outrageous moments. After all, it’s hard to predict what others will do when a streamer is out in the wild… and sometimes they can capture things that are outrageous for an audience of thousands of live viewers.

Two German streamers captured one of those wild moments on a recent show in Berlin. The duo were chirping to the audience in the middle of a mall, casually singing songs into a microphone for all to hear.

Instagram: ronnybergers

Twitch streamer Ronny Bergers and co. were serenading the audience when their guitar was caught by a thief.

Unfortunately, they were too preoccupied with their musical performance to pay much attention to the guitar which was in an open case right behind them.

During their live broadcast, viewers could clearly see a passer-by grabbing the guitar and walking away as smoothly as if it had belonged to him.

Both streamers had no desire for the theft to even take place and continued to moan into the microphone… until one of the broadcasters finally noticed the missing guitar some time later.

However, rather than panicking over the expensive instrument’s sudden disappearance, the duo laughed in shock before one of the streamers announced that they were missing their guitar in the microphone in case someone. someone nearby would know what had happened.

It’s safe to say that commentators on the net were left speechless at what just happened, as well as the streamers’ nonchalant response to the theft.

This is far from the first time that a streamer has detected a theft in real time; in 2019, broadcaster Giannie Lee filmed a pickpocket grabbing someone’s wallet, who ended up “returning” the item after realizing it had been taken in 4K.

Fortunately, according to an Instagram post from German streamers, the thief was caught and their guitar returned, which pleasantly ended an otherwise unpleasant situation, marking another chapter in the ongoing annals of Twitch’s most shocking moments.

Warner Bros. Entertainment to film documentary series on German women’s football team Tue, 21 Sep 2021 07:45:01 +0000

The German Football Association (DFB), in partnership with Warner Bros. Entertainment, is producing a six-part documentary series about its national football team with the aim of “shining a light” on women’s football. Each episode will be one hour long and will focus on the Nationallf (National Eleven) and its players.

With a release slated for 2022 or 2023, the filmmakers will follow the team, two-time female world champion, eight-time European champion and Olympic gold medalist in 2016, at least until the end of the final of the l ‘Women’s Euro next summer in England, with a decision on where the series will end based on the team’s progress at the championships.

Although the producers claim that the series will be a “world first” in terms of mapping the fortunes of an international women’s team, recent similar documentaries have been released from the women’s clubs side. In 2018, Curious Films shot a blockbuster ten-part series, Britain’s youngest football boss, centered on the West Ham United women’s team which eventually aired on the country’s flagship channel, BBC One, and returned for a six-part second series, Squadruple goals, the following season. In Spain, Exile Content and Newtral have teamed up to shoot a four-part series, A Sueño Real, on the Real Madrid women’s team which aired on HBO España.

The film crew first visited the team in February 2021 to build a trusting relationship with the players before they started filming during the next international break in April. Warner Bros insists that “there is no script, no rehearsals and no fake stories – the main point of the series is to tell the authentic story of the protagonists.”

National team goalkeeper Merle Frohms says “It’s a brilliant project. We were super excited when we found out what the team had planned. crew”.

Series director and producer Martina Hänsel promises the show will not just focus on the disparities between men’s and women’s football, but will aim to be more “confident”. “Our theme is more than football. It will not only show sports developments but also the daily life of the players and their dual careers as internationals and club players. The life of the protagonists will be shown in an authentic way.”

The players will be filmed with the national team, but scenes will also be filmed with their club teams and in a private setting such as the players’ recent visit to the Volkswagen factory in Dresden. Frohms, 26, admitted that he had to overcome some initial reservations about being in front of the camera. “I was a little skeptical at first, when Martina came to me and asked if we could film something involving my movement and dance rhythms, but I accepted the challenge and it also became clear that ‘there was no pressure. Everything was really relaxed.

“It was agreed from the start, however, that no one should be forced into anything. No one said they wanted any part of it. There was also no one who feared anything. internal going out or being misinterpreted. There are a few players who are not afraid of the camera, like Laura Freigang or Sara Doorsoun. It will be really interesting to see who becomes more open as the shoot goes on and plays then a bigger role on the screen “.

Despite plans to follow the team to a major league next summer, Frohms doesn’t think the presence of the production team increases the team’s expectations to make the headlines on the pitch. “It’s good that a film crew is accompanying us, but it was also said from the start that this was not meant to create additional pressure or that we have to take the trophy home to increase sales. The series should be about the team rather than the European Championships – regardless of what happens at the Euro.

Hänsel believes that following one of the best national teams in the world on a year-long trip is enough attraction to market the show to an audience increasingly eager to experience the lives of female footballers. . “This team and these players have a lot of stories to tell. There will be a lot of marketing for the show – his goal in this regard is to get as much publicity as possible.

German head coach Martina Voss-Tecklenburg admitted that “we saw the first trailer (of the series) and had tears in our eyes. We are happy with this great project”.
