HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

A Hattiesburg church celebrated traditional German culture Saturday during its 39th annual Oktoberfest.

St. John Lutheran Church welcomed hundreds of visitors who ate bratwurst, sauerkraut, German potato salad and various desserts.

The event is a fundraiser for mission work.

Many of the church's members are of German descent.

Oktoberfest was first celebrated in Bavaria in 1810.
