July 19, 2012

Monumental efforts have already been made, but there is a lot more work to do to make the third annual Bavarian Fall Fest the success the festival committee is aiming for.
Bavarian Fall Fest Committee Chairperson Dolly Wehler and Vice Chair Paula Weyant said they are excited at the level of interest shown for this year’s event, which will run from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 21, 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 22, and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 23.
“It’s going to be a mix, and more of what we had last year,” Weyant said, adding that they have high hopes for the event's continued success.
"We're hoping that it becomes a tradition with families where they'll plan a weekend at home and their kids will come back to town for the weekend," Weyant said.
