While the Island Oktoberfest hosted by First Evangelical Lutheran Church attracts fans of sausage, beer, polka and all items German, one of the most highly anticipated components is the traditional strudel served up by Cindy Cornelison.

“Oktoberfest starts at 5 p.m. on Friday, and by 5:15, we have a big line,” said Cornelison, who markets the pastry as Helga’s Strudel. “I bring six convections ovens, and each one holds 32 strudels. On Saturday, those ovens stay full from 6:30 a.m. until 9:30 at night.”
