It’s time for Oktoberfest!


So we can’t deny it; summer is over. The nightly frosts, colored foliage, yep fall is definitely here.

Heck it’s October already.

And the best thing about fall, other than hunting season, is Oktoberfest.

Celebrate the turning of the season with Harrison’s fifth annual Oktoberfest.

The event is from 1 to 7 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 6 at Harrison’s beautiful City Park near the shores of Coeur d’Alene Lake.  Last year, more than 800 people attended and this year, organizer Teri Riberich says they are expecting close to 1,000.

Oktoberfest is not just about sampling the beer and wine offered by the more than a half-dozen breweries and wineries. The event includes music and food, with children’s activities that will include bounce houses, gyro, penny scramble, painting station, bingo and face painting.

Riverboat Dave and Harmonica Jess will perform from 1 to 4 p.m. The Jam Band will play from 4 to 7 p.m.

Admission and music is free for all ages. Those wishing to drink will be required to obtain a wristband in order to buy beer. Souvenir glasses will be available for $10 and that also includes four tickets.

The event will go on regardless of weather. However, there will be an event tent set up with heaters.

So don’t miss out. Join us in Harrison Saturday for Oktoberfest.

Just another great reason to call St. Maries home.
