Cue The Music

Posted: Updated:
WHITEFISH -

Oktoberfest is in full swing now in Whitefish.

Thursday, September 26 is locals night, so Flathead residents can get in free.

The Whitefish chamber of commerce estimates the two-weekend event could bring up to 8,000 people out to Depot Park. Of those, about 1,500 come from outside the Valley.

Even some of the musicians playing Thursday have come down from Canada, like the Western Senators, a Grammy-nominated polka band.

"It's kind of a free for all on the dance floor. You can dance any way that you want. Don't worry if you don't know how to do a polka or a two-step or any of that kind of stuff. Just come out. Listen to the music. Get with it," said Brian Sklar, the band's leader.

The Western Senators have played at Oktoberfest since it began four years ago, and will continue making music for the rest of the weekend in Whitefish.
