South Park will be jumping with great music and the smell of wonderful German food will permeate the air on June 6 as the Quincy Sister City Commission presents Germanfest.

Germanfest begins at 5 p.m. and runs until 10:30 that Saturday and will feature great German and domestic beers and wines along with plenty of brats and potato salad. Music will be provided by the Heidelberg German Band. There will be games and other activities to keep Quincy's German heritage alive and well.

German families in the area are also welcomed to meet with the Great River Genealogical Society and trace their family history that night at South Park. All proceeds from Germanfest will go toward the Sister City Commission's student exchange program with students in  Herford, Germany, Quincy's sister city.
