Sandra Cleary announced as 2022 Mrs. Oktoberfest

LA CROSSE (WKBT) — Another Oktoberfest royal family member has been announced and we know who’s taking the title of Mrs. Oktoberfest 2022.

Sandra Cleary was introduced as this year’s Mrs. O Saturday and it’s all in the family.

Cleary comes from a line of Oktoberfest royalty. Her grandfather and father were both festmasters years ago.

Cleary was brought up volunteering and is very involved in the community.

Her volunteer efforts include working with scouts, the Boys and Girls club, UWL Foundation and the La Crosse park board.

She loves to be a part of the festivities, and is excited for the collaborations to come.

“I just hope I can be as great as the other Mrs. O’s. There are some amazing women that go before me,” Cleary said.

Cleary’s button theme is unity in the community.

She’s hoping to highlight the work everyone puts in to make Oktoberfest happen.
