Oktoberfest - Party in the Street & Chair Luge

Saturday, September 28, 2019

The Gardner Chair Luge is held in Downtown Gardner during the Oktoberfest "Party in the Street" at the Gardner Ale House. The idea is to get a chair, put wheels on it, put some kind of brakes and steering on it, don a helmet and roll downhill, starting at the Gardner Ale House and finishing at Beauregard Liquors. Teams of two build their ride and race each other down the street for about 200 yards, trying not to crash, and the winner is crowned champion. The Acadien Social Club features “Human Bumpers” and a locally known emcee who’s shtick and costume are always a surprise. A theme is chosen each year (Hollywood this year!) to add spice and laughter, and direct the Lugers to dress up.
