Oktoberfest 2012
Oktoberfest 2012
Groveland, California, USA
Mid October
Mark your calendars for the Fifth Annual OktoberFest,this year scheduled for Saturday, October 13, at Big Creek Meadow Ranch on Smith Station Road just east of Groveland, CA. Local service clubs, businesses and school projects all benefit from this German-style harvest festival. OktoberFest has been growing over the last four years, and is a popular outlet for arts and crafts vendors, from jewelry booths and handcrafted goods to local artists’ work. The Haunted Barn benefits a local nonprofit and a free Bounce House is sponsored by the Pizza Factory. Hay Rides are also free. Jennifer is once again on hand, painting butterflies, tigers and the like on eager faces. There is live music throughout the day. The Haunted Barn is a highlight, with rooms marked ‘Scary’, ‘More scary’, and ‘Very very scary!’ so parents can monitor viewing choices. The ever-popular scarecrow contest is held by age group: K-3, 4-8, 9-12, and seniors (over 55), www.YosemiteChamberofCommerce.com although we encourage families to enter the contest as a group. A new event this year will be the Pumpkin Carving contest, held in categories scariest, Funniest, Biggest and Smallest. Entry forms for these contests are available at The Pizza Factory, All Seasons Groveland Inn, or by calling Sarah on 962-4482. The forms can also be downloaded via www.bigcreekmeadowranch.com Judging will be at 3 p. m by Groveland’s new Mayor and other local dignitaries. Get your creative hat on.
