Peoria gets a taste of Germany at the annual Wurstfest


PEORIA (WEEK) -- German culture was highlighted and celebrated today at the annual Wurstfest at the Peoria Lindenhoff.

Local German singing group known as Damenchor, invited residents from Peoria and the surrounding areas to come and enjoy live entertainment and a taste of Germany.

This flavorful event featured 2 sausages and side dishes of Sauekraut and German potato salad while also featuring different types of beer.

Ingrid Ruscheinski, chairman of the Wurstfest, says sausage is the "name of the game" in Germany.

Ruscheinski also says the amount of people that came to enjoy these German dishes exceeded their expectations. They are hoping to see an even bigger crowd next year.
