Ogdensburg Chamber’s Ogtoberfest is today


OGDENSBURG — Come to the Greenbelt today and pretend you’re wrapped up in the noisy oompah glory of an authentic beer hall in Munich, Germany.

The Greater Ogdensburg Chamber of Commerce will present its first Ogtoberfest on the grounds of the Dobisky Visitors Center and the city marina, both overlooking the St. Lawrence River on Riverside Avenue.

For both food and entertainment, the menu will be varied.

“We have a fantastic program for this year,” said Sandra M. Porter, the Chamber’s executive director. “We put this together in one month.”

The Seaway Valley Jumpers will set up at 11 a.m. with inflatable bounce houses, games and cotton candy.

The Frederic Remington Art Museum Kid’s Place will sponsor children’s arts and crafts from 1 to 4 p.m.

The beer garden, authentic German food booths, serving such things as bratwurst, sauerkraut and pretzels, and music by the Army’s 10th Mountain Division Band from Fort Drum, Carl Perkins and Surfer R Cool will begin at 2 p.m. and continue through 7 p.m., when the fireworks show will begin.

The 10th Mountain Division Band will perform from 3 to 5 p.m.

Admission to the enclosed beer garden is $2 per person.

For the event, the Chamber’s Saturday GreenMarket farmers market will move from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Library Park to noon to 7 p.m. by the other Ogtoberfest setups in the Greenbelt.

Twelve produce and craft vendors will be there.

“I want the city to see what a good farmers market we have,” Ms. Porter said.
