Here\u2019s one you won\u2019t want to miss.<\/h1>\r\nOktoberfest at Montwell Commons on Sunday, Oct. 6, 3 to 7 p.m. in the Gwen Clingman Center in the middle of the Commons. This event was created as a special fall family event with fun and activities for everyone, even the smallest member of your family. As the first annual Oktoberfest at Montwell Commons, the organizers hope to heighten the public\u2019s awareness of the many facilities now in place at the Commons and share with the community an afternoon and evening together enjoying fun-filled activities in downtown Lewisburg.\r\n\r\nRunning from 3 to 5 p.m., youngsters are invited to join in games and kids contests, face painting and races, like egg on a spoon, and folk dancing with Beth White. Bee hive exhibits and local honey are also on the agenda, and if you have apples you\u2019d like pressed for cider, plan to bring them along for Cliff Baker to crush in his cider press.\r\n\r\nLet\u2019s not forget the food \u2026 and the beer. Apple cider, pretzels, potato salad, brats, strudel and more are offered, plus four great brews will be on tap. (For brew descriptions, go to montwellcommons.org\/special-event).\r\n\r\nThen at 5 p.m. the music will kick in featuring Phil Ralston Philharmonic with Susanna Robinson singing sweet harmonies in the October open air. So bring your friends and come dressed for the occasion! Emcee Glenn Singer will present Montwell Commons\u2019 objectives and wishlist and announce children\u2019s contest winners, door prize drawings and best lederhosen, best beer stein, best strudel and best polka dancer(s). Prizes include T-shirts and hats emblazoned with the theme of the event - Oktoberfest at Montwell Commons 2019.\r\n\r\nA display of Montwell Commons will feature future plans for the communal areas, including benches, trees and an expanded parking lot. Proceeds from tickets for food, beverages, games, and T-shirts will go to site improvements at Montwell Commons, a 501(c)3 resource managed by volunteers.
