Big Rapids Germanfest would like to welcome Immigrant Sons to this years event.


Beside our band, we have two other forms of entertainment. This year we once again feature “Hammerschlagen” a game where competitors are required to drive nails into an Oak block with a small maul. The one who does it in the shortest amount of time is the champion.

Our most popular game; “Masskrugstemmen” is where contestants hold one liter glass mugs at arms length. The contestant who is able to keep his or her (yes many times the Damen are the winners) arm extended the longest, is the winner.

These two games are a lot of fun for the young—and young of heart!
