After watching her granddaughters ride horses from Hilltop Stables, Brenda Tutt knew exactly where she was headed next.
"The food," she said.
The smell of bratwurst and other foods filled the air at Fort Gordon's Barton Field during the Oktoberfest celebration, and the aroma tempted Tutt and others attending the event.
"We could not have asked for a better day," said Steve Walpert, Fort Gordon's entertainment director.
"We have great talent and terrific food, plenty of what makes Oktoberfest famous."
Entertainment included the U.S. Army Signal Corps Band, Terry Cavanaugh and the Alpine Express and the Edelweiss dancers and singers.
Oktoberfest-related events were held Oct. 11-14, but most of the activity took place on Saturday as the Fort Gordon Service Club joined in with its annual fall flea market, and a vintage car show was held.
"It's been a huge success," said Judi Pitts, co-chairwoman for the annual flea market.
About 100 vendors sold items at the event. Proceeds from space sales help the service club fund its scholarships and grants to charities.
A carnival with games and rides rounded out the event.
