A German festival in the suburbs is celebrating Oktoberfest in August.

The three-day Oktoberfest is happening at Buffalo Grove's Schwerin. It is the 134th annual Summer Festival put on by the German Social Club.

As one might expect, there was German food aplenty, including sausage and sauerkraut. There were also games and bouncy-houses for children.

"Oktoberfest in August" runs until 10 p.m. Sunday.
