The smell of beer, the sounds of polka music and beautiful fall weather were in the air for​ ​Oktoberfest last weekend.

​From Friday, Sept. 29-Sunday, Oct. 1, the parking lot of Tinley Park’s​ 80th Avenue Train Station​ was transformed into a Germanic wonderland to​ ​celebrate the arrival of autumn.

Residents caught a lucky break from the heat, and the cool weather allowed attendees to walk around, drink beer, visit vendors and – for the children – enjoy rides.
