continued “It’s an exciting new event and we’re looking forward to partnering with the Optimists’ club,” Joe said. “It’s a unique event to tie into Oktoberfest.”
People on the shore can enjoy viewing the decorated boats as they cruise along the shoreline while boaters can enjoy entertainment on Paper Mill Island featuring Twisted Folk, Saturday night’s headliner (performing onstage from 7:45 to 11 p.m.). Friday night’s headliner is Fritz’ Polka Band (8 to 11 p.m.) and The Enzians Bavarian Band and Dancers will return to perform authentic German music both days of the event (4 to 7:30 p.m. Friday and noon to 7:15 p.m. Saturday). The mayor said Virgil the Magician will also organize a family tent from noon to 6 p.m. Saturday.
“Oktoberfest is a great end of the season celebration and a chance for the community to come together and celebrate the end of summer,” Joe said.
