Throughout the day, attendees will have the opportunity to groove to the tunes of FOUR local bands and can even partake in dance lessons, including the famous chicken dance and various line dances. Adding an extra dash of German-themed flair, a roaming oompah entertainer will be on hand to amp up the festivities.

The Happiness (5 p.m. – 6 p.m.): A cover band belting out hits from the 80s, 90s, 2000s, and today.
Satisfying the palate, the Post Falls Rotary Club will serve up a sumptuous German feast of bratwurst, sauerkraut, and German potato salad at just $10 per plate. The Burger Dock, Taco Works, and the Sugar Shack food vendors will also be on site to ensure a culinary experience to suit every taste.

Rain or shine, the Post Falls Rotary Club envisions this event not just as a one-time occurrence but as an evolving German-themed counterpart to the beloved Post Falls Days celebration.
“Prost in the Park has the opportunity to grow into something really big while also celebrating our city’s German heritage,” Rotary Secretary and event organizer Christina Petit said. “We’re looking at it to be a family-friendly Oktoberfest-style festival that we hold every year.”
Frederick Post, the namesake of Post Falls, was born in 1821 in Herborn, Germany. In 1871, he met Coeur d’Alene tribal Chief Andrew Seltice at what is now known as Treaty Rock, purchasing 298 acres which would eventually become the heart of Post Falls. This shared history has led Herborn, Germany and Post Falls to recognize each other as sister cities.
