Oktoberfest likely to become free eventBy David J. Cross
The German Village Society is continuing to go forward with plans to move its annual Oktoberfest celebration back to the village and has announced one major change: The event is likely to be free.
The society met with various city officials Feb. 18 to discuss whether it would be feasible to move the event to South Third Street between Beck and Frankfort streets. Bill Curlis, a society trustee and chair of Oktoberfest, said the meeting was encouraging and that the society will continue to plan the event as if it will take place in the village.
