For what organizers hope is the last time, Snow Hill’s Oktoberfest is scheduled to compete with Berlin’s event this Saturday beginning at 11 a.m. downtown.
“We’re going to try to work it out for next year. We’d like to expand our event a little bit, but would like it to remain kind of a locals’ thing. Berlin makes a big show,” Michael Day, economic development consultant for Snow Hill, and formerly Berlin, said.
Day said this year is only the second time Snow Hill has hosted an Oktoberfest, and the town and organizers were still “feeling their way through it.”
To that end, the town has its bases covered.
The Chamber of Commerce is providing a beer truck, the Harvest Moon Tavern and American Legion post will be serving up German-themed dishes and Frank Nanna’s CowPolkas will be performing.
