There were many other people who did a great job and put their heart and soul in this event and for that I thank you.
We saw a lot more people wearing their authentic German attire and for that we thank you as that works getting into the mode of Oktoberfest.
We truly hope everyone who attended had a great time! If you would like to give us some feedback please feel free to call the chamber and offer your comments and suggestions.
We appreciate having Mayor Najarian, Councilman John Drayman and Councilman Dave Weaver attending the event and speaking to the crowd.
Look for all the photos of the winners of the different contests that were running throughout the day in the newsletter soon.
Some things to put on your calendar are ArtWalk on Saturday, Nov. 10, and of course let’s not forget the Christmas Parade on Saturday, Dec. 1. Tell me it’s just a dream that the holidays are not upon us. No No No… oh sorry — I meant Ho. Ho. Ho…
