We have lost our longtime home, the Edelweiss Inn at Wallowa Lake. The nearly century-old building is no longer inhabitable. But we have an even better alternative. ln its place for the next few years, we plan to rent a giant tent in the parking lot of the Wallowa Lake Marina, so that Alpenfest will be an experience like the original big Oktoberfest tents in Munich, Germany. We promise a rousing a good time with beer, bratwurst and Swiss and Bavarian entertainment.
