Oktoberfest!

Celebrate the season of fall in Harrison this weekend.

The annual Oktoberfest is from 1 to 7 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 4, at Harrison City Park.

Organizer Teri Riberich says the event continues to be a success. Last year, more than 700 glasses were sold and more than 1,500 people attended the event.

“The weather is supposed to be decent,” she said. “Fall is a good time of year. It’s one of my favorite seasons here.”

Oktoberfest is from 1 to 7 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 4, in Harrison City Park. Teri Riberich has worked to organize the event throughout the years. Several breweries plan to attend and the event will be held rain or shine. Activities are also planned for children.

This will be the seventh year for the event in Harrison. It is sponsored by the Harrison Chamber of Commerce. Ms. Riberich said the event draws people from all over the area including Canada and Spokane.

“One of the reasons for the event is we want to extend Harrison’s season. Harrison is amazing and the activities shouldn’t stop just because summer is over,” she said. “It’s a chance for the community to come together and to bring people into Harrison.”

The historic and quaint backdrop of downtown Harrison and Lake Coeur d’Alene make for the idyllic Oktoberfest setting as well.

Ms. Riberich said the activities this year are similar to previous years. Breweries will attend including Tricksters, Wallace Brewing, North Idaho Mountain Brewing Company, Paradise Creek, home breweries and more.

Glasses, that feature the logo for the event and this year’s date, will be sold for $10. A glass comes with four drink tickets.

Eric E. will perform during the first half of the day and The Jam Shack will play in the later half.

There will be activities for children, Ms. Riberich added, including a bouncy house, an obstacle course, the penny scramble and face painting.

“We already have several vendors who will line the streets as well,” she said. “If anyone is still interested they can contact me.”

For the second year, the chamber will be selling long sleeve shirts, hoodies and sweatshirts that feature the Oktoberfest logo.

“This is still fairly new. We started it last year and we sold a handful of items, but I don’t think people really realized we were selling clothing items,” she said.

Clothing will be available for purchase during the event at the booth in the park. KY102 will be broadcasting live at the event from 2 to 5 p.m.

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

Money from the event benefits the Harrison Chamber of Commerce and will be put toward the Fourth of July fireworks show, the Summer Concert Series and various city projects.

For more information about being a vendor at the event call Ms. Riberich at 208-582-2341.
