The Pierz Oktoberfest Committee will host the Kingery Family in concert Saturday, Aug. 23, at 8 p.m.
The Kingery family, from Central Minnesota, began as a family of 10 — Mike, Chris and their eight children, singing and ministering together through music. It has grown to include two sons-in-law and four grandchildren. They have enjoyed singing together for the past eight years.
They sing primarily gospel bluegrass music while incorporating fiddle, patriotic, Americana and a capella.
The concert will be held outside on the Pierz Elementary School grounds, so guests are advised to bring a chair or blanket. In case of bad weather, it will be held in the Pierz Healy Performing Arts Center (PAC).
There will be plenty of time after the concert to find a spot to watch the fireworks show, which begins at approximately 10 p.m. The fireworks show is sponsored by the Pierz Lions Club in celebration of the club’s 50th anniversary and kicks off Oktoberfest. The Oktoberfest celebration continues Sunday.
