Lakeport to host Oktoberfest this fall

LAKEPORT – Downtown Lakeport will be the scene of an old-fashioned German celebration when it hosts Oktoberfest this fall.


The event will take place on Saturday, Oct. 2.


Main Street will be closed from First to Fourth streets and filled with food, arts, crafts and game booths for all ages.


An authentic beer garden will be created with the opportunity to taste a large variety of microbrews. Activities such as pretzel making, pretzel eating, beer stein carrying contests, authentic beer stein contests are among some of the “fun things to do” in which adults and children can participate.


There will be games and contests, beer tasting, wine tasting, great food booths, arts and crafts booths, and music and entertainment throughout the entire day, culminating with a street dance.


A new event at Oktoberfest, not held in Lake County previously, will be a “Dachshund Derby Dash.”


If you want your dachshund to be a wiener winner, contact the chamber or go to www.oktoberfest-lakeport.com for an entry application.


The Dachshund Derby Dash will have a short course for the short-legged dachshunds, with an emphasis on safety. All dogs must have some dachshund in them, but need not be purebreds.


First place will award the title to your friend of “2010 Wiener Winner” and he or she will win his person a $100! Weiner costumes are encouraged for your doggy, the best dog costume will receive a nice prize.


The rules are simple: vaccinated dogs only, leashed at all times until the race. The entry fee is $10. For more information on the derby contact Jan Parkinson at 707-349-2919.


Plan now to attend Oktoberfest and become reacquainted with downtown merchants as you enjoy a day long festival of fun.
