The 8th Annual Oktoberfest is Saturday, Oct. 3, in Harrison, rain or shine.

The event is from 1 to 7 p.m. in city park and offers activities for adults and children.

Teri Riberich has organized the event for the past eight years and said it continues to grow.

Once again, the city of Harrison on Lake Coeur d'Alene provides a beautiful backdrop for the Oktoberfest celebration. This is the eighth year Teri Riberich has organized the event.

“The historic and quaint backdrop of downtown Harrison and the natural beauty of Lake Coeur d’Alene make for the idyllic Oktoberfest setting,” she said.

This year, six local breweries will attend. They are Wallace Brewing, Tricksters, Daft Badger, Summit Cider, Mad Bomber and Paradise Creek. A home brew club will also attend, as well as Sheppard Fruit Wines.

Mrs. Riberich said souvenir glasses to sample the beers cost $10. An I.D. will be required to obtain a wristband for purchasing beer.

Music will be provided by Riverboat Dave and Harmonica Jess playing a finger snapping and foot stomping acoustic blend. They will be followed by Down South’s energetic mix. Music is free for all ages.

Children’s activities will include bounce houses, contests, painting and more. Food will be available and served by the Kootenai reader board fundraising crew. Money will benefit the effort to install a reader board.

K102 will also be broadcasting live from the event and there will be raffle prizes drawn every hour. Vendors are welcome, and volunteers are needed. Call Mrs. Riberich at 582-2341 for more information.

The event is sponsored by the Harrison Chamber of Commerce and the city of Harrison.
