Portola’s first Oktoberfest features multiple cook-offs
Everyone is welcome Saturday, Oct. 5, to the inaugural Portola Oktoberfest, 2 – 5 p.m. in Portola City Park. The event will include home brew, root beer, chili and sauerkraut cook-off contests. Kids can join in by entering the pumpkin decorating contest, judging food and root beer, or by winning in the cake walk.
There will be prizes for the winners in each category. Anyone can enter. The entry fee for the cook-off will be $5, and $25 for the home brewers. Winners in the brew and cooking categories will receive a 50/50 cash prize, with a special award for best restaurant entries.
Anyone who would like to be a judge may purchase a wristband at the event, and indulge in food and brew. Individual and family prices are to be announced, depending on the amount of entries received.
There will be traditional music and fun for the whole family. For entry forms, contact Lorraine at Homestead Fabrics 832-0446. The Portola Area Business Owners Association is sponsoring this event.
