I know it seems like we tell you to get here for some type of event nearly every weekend, but it’s for your own good. And this weekend is no different.

Harrison’s Sixth Annual Oktoberfest is from 1 to 7 p.m. Saturday in Harrison’s City Park – rain or shine.

The event is sponsored by the Harrison Chamber of Commerce and benefits the Fourth of July Fireworks, the Summer Concert Series and other chamber products.

Plus, it’s just plain fun.

According to event organizer Teri Riberich, more than 800 glasses were sold at the 2012 Oktoberfest (pictured here). The annual event is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 5 and will run from 1 to 7 p.m.

And the scenery couldn’t be better: Harrison’s City Park is located just up the hill from Harrison City Beach and, as all you geography buffs are probably already figuring out, gives way to a beautiful view of Lake Coeur d’Alene. Throw in a few red- and orange-tipped trees and – blamo! – pure North Idaho autumn beauty.

Add food booths, children’s craft tables and the microbrew sampling stations, and you’ve got yourself a lakeside town’s take on Oktoberfest.

The cost for adults to sample the beer is $10, which includes four beer tickets and a souvenir glass. Participating breweries include Wallace Brewing Company, Trickster’s, North Idaho Mountain Brew, Idaho Hops, Payette and Crooked Fence.

There will be a painting table and games for children and a scavenger hunt for both kids and adults. The hunt will lead participants to local businesses.

Music will be performed throughout the day and KY102 Radio will broadcast from the event.

Did we mention the lake would serve as the backdrop?
