It was a festival weekend in Lombard, which means plenty of carnival rides, children's activities, games, bingo, bands -- it's not really a party if 7th heaven doesn't take the stage at some point -- and food.

But this one was a little different because most of the food had a distinct German flair -- schnitzel, pork shanks, pretzels with mustard, beer and apple strudel -- that you'd probably expect from a four-day celebration called Germanfest.

This was the fest's 51st year and, as usual, it was sponsored by Sacred Heart Catholic Church on Elizabeth Street.
