Many Faces of Amana's Maifest 2012

Maifest in the Amana Colonies is one of a series of annual celebrations with themes of season, German, Amana, agrarian, and family. This past weekend's three day celebration in Main Amana featured traditional May pole dancers, German polka music and of course lots of food and beer. Saturday's exceptional summer-like weather brought many people out early to see the sights, hear the music and chow on brats and locally brewed Millstream Beer.  

If you didn't have a chance to experience Maifest, be sure to visit Amana for these celebrations: Oktoberfest Sept 28-30, Tannenbaum Forest Nov 23-December 16, Prelude to Christmas Nov 30-Dec 2 or Winterfest Jan 26th. Know that.
