The annual Oktoberfest celebration at the Martin Luther Campus in Bloomington featured a Scandinavian influence. In addition to traditional German fare, the Sept. 26 dinner featured an appearance by Minnesota Vikings cheerleaders, Rich and the Resistors -- the Minnesota Vikings house band -- and Bloomington Police Officer Dennis Koosmann, who introduced his K-9 “Blue” to guests at the dinner.
