The Third Annual Buffalo Chamber of Commerce Oktoberfest will be this Saturday from noon to 6 in downtown Buffalo.
Chamber Director Angela Jarvis tells us more about the festival and the associated events.
Those interested in participating in the Tour De Lure or the Bicycle Poker Run need to sign up by Friday if possible so they know what they need for prizes. The Tour De Lure begins at 3pm and the Poker Run starts at 3:30.
Nearly 40 different beers from amateur brewers in eight different categories will be vying for recognition, cash prizes and a chance to have them featured at area brewpubs. Register each beer for $15 through the Chamber.
In addition to the local brews, regional breweries will also be on hand with samples of their creations as well.
Oktoberfest won't be hard to find as Main Street will be closed from the bridge at Clear Creek south to Angus Street. All ages are welcome, but ID's will be checked and wrist bands will be given to designate those over and under 21.
