This year’s Lions Community Beer tent will have more action than ever. Located to the South of the downtown Pavilion, both evenings will have MULTIPLE live bands rotating in 90 minute sets from 6-10 pm. The Chamber’s chili cook off will kick off Saturday morning at 9:30 with public tasting at 1 pm, followed by awards at 2. From 2-2:30 will be sign ups for the Lions/Harvest Fest Corn Hole Tournament. Preregistering is recommended, but signs ups will be taken on site on a first come/first served (as space allows). Sunday will have the ever popular Kids Halloween Parade.
New this year in keeping with the Oktoberfest theme, will be a Best German Costume contest (male and female) on Friday night around 7:15 PM . On Saturday night about the same time (7:15) will be the German Beer Stein holding contest. There will be no charge to enter and the winners will receive some great prizes–such as collector beer steins, and gift certificates to local breweries and eateries! Space will be limited, so please arrive approx 30 minutes prior and sign up at the ticket table or bar.
Some great craft beers will be on tap and a couple seasonal Oktoberfest brews will also be served on both days. We will also have a couple other beverages for the non-beer drinking guests.
Bring out your Lederhosen and Dirndls. We’re all German tonight. Remember, ALL proceeds made from this event will go towards local charities and help make our town better! For further info email KNeveau@macatawabank.com.
Go Rockford Lions!!!
