Lederhosen Champion

October 13, 2008

IMG_1364Ran in the Harpoon Octoberfest Road Race this weekend – and they had a German Costume Contest as part of the race.  I couldn’t resist, so I rented some Lederhosen and my sister-in-law and I took 1st place Male and 1st Place Female in the costume contest.  The prize was a backpack, a 6-pack and eternal fame.  There were awards for running the race fast as well – but it’s far easier to rent lederhosen than to run a 5k in under 20min.  The weather was perfect and the Octoberfestivities following the race were very fun.  The kids were having fun almost the whole time – especially dancing to the German Polka Band.

I got a free bumper sticker and brautwerst just for “looking the part” as well.



  1. […] Doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles […]

    • @Ezra: I rented mine from a local costume shop.

      • What costume shop did you rent it from?

      • It’s a local place in NH.
