Oktoberfest to be held Oct. 11, 12

CROSSVILLE — The Crossville Knights of Columbus are preparing for Oktoberfest 2013 high atop the Cumberland Plateau. Reserve the dates of Oct. 11 and 12 for your dining, dancing and listening pleasure at The Knights of Columbus Activity Park, 2892 Hwy. 70 East in Crossville, (Exit 322 off I-40, south to Hwy. 70, then 1/3 mile east).

The festivities will kick off with the traditional tapping of the keg at 11:30 a.m. on Friday, Oct. 11. Continuous music will then run immediately after the keg tapping through 9:30 p.m. On Saturday, Oct. 12, another day of fun, food, music and excitement will begin at 11 a.m. and continue until 9:30 p.m.

Returning again this year for their 14th year is the ever popular group, the Rheingold Band from Louisville, KY. This group of five men has performed at fests all over the Midwest in their traditional lederhosen. Look for them, with their upbeat tempo, to get the crowd involved both young and old. The Bavarian Echo, a husband and wife band from Rutledge, will provide their specialty of German and Bavarian music. Performing for their third year at Oktoberfest will be the Frank Moravcik Band from Cleveland, OH. The band plays a wide variety of music featuring their own brand of “Cleveland style” polka music.

All day and evening long, you will be able to enjoy, once again, the authentic German food that you have come to expect at the Oktoberfest. Enjoy bratwurst, knackwurst, wiesswurst, pork schnitzel and kasseler rippchen (smoked pork chop), along with sauerkraut, red cabbage and cinnamon apples. For dessert, German chocolate cake and cheesecake are available. Imported and domestic beverages are also available.

The Knights of Columbus started the Oktoberfest in Crossville 23 years ago, and it has become a yearly event that is anxiously awaited by many throughout Middle and East Tennessee. Oktoberfest in Crossville has been rated by many as the most authentic Oktoberfest they have attended.

So if you want to dance to the best German bands in the country, eat the best German food in the land or just come out and watch the festivities, Oktoberfest in Crossville is the place to be rain or shine. All activities are under cover.

Admission tickets are $7.50 at the gate. Advance tickets are $6 and can be purchased starting Sept. 15 at both Cancun Mexican Restaurants, Sears, Best One Tire (Main Street Store), Romo’s Mexican Restaurant and the Lace Place and Chocolate Emporium in Crossville, the Fairfield Glade Community Center in Fairfield and Star Realty in Lake Tansi.

  • AROUND THE TOWN: The Easter egg hunt that never was

    The Easter Bunny should be able to deliver his baskets in pretty nice weather this weekend. The Good Friday and Easter holiday weekend should feature much warmer temperatures than we had earlier this week when snow showers fell on Cumberland County. Cumberland County students were released Tuesday for spring break, but their last day of school for the week found snow and ice falling from the sky and temperatures in the 20s. Students will return to class on Monday.

  • PLATEAU GARDENING: Cool-season lawn grass fertilization and soil tests

    Recently, I got an inquiry about the right timing for homeowners who want to fertilize a cool-season lawn which has bare spots that need over-seeding. An email from a new resident in the Crossville area asked how to take a soil sample and where to have it tested. Since problems with the pH or fertility of the soil beneath can result in chronically thin grass with persistent bare places up top, testing the soil then correcting pH and fertility to match plant needs can be an important first step in maintaining your lawn.
