Dates set for the 35th Oktoberfest
The dates are set for Walhalla to stage its 35th Oktoberfest—an annual celebration of the County Seat’s Germanic roots. Vanessa Penton of the Greater Walhalla Chamber of Commerce this week announced the 2013 Oktoberfest weekend for October 18, 19, and 20. And Mayor Danny Edwards said last night that, in deference to the busy activity that his city will take on that weekend, work on Streetscape won’t start until after the festival. Utilities superintendent Scott Parris told the mayor and council last night that he thinks he may have found a funding source in Columbia to help pay for the water and sewer line work that’ll take place before the new Main Street alignment.
