Oktoberfest to be held October 12 and 13

CROSSVILLE — The Crossville Knights of Columbus are preparing for Oktoberfest 2012 high atop the Cumberland Plateau. Reserve the dates of Oct. 12 and 13 for your dining, dancing and listening pleasure, at The Knights of Columbus Activity Park, located at 2892 Highway 70 East in Crossville, Tennessee (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. 12. Tapping the keg will be this year’s Honorary Lady Mayor Ronni Chase and Honorary Lord Mayor Panama Jack, the 102.5 WOW Country “Morning Moo Crew.” Continuous music will then run immediately after the keg tapping through 9:30 p.m. On Saturday, Oct. 13 another day of fun, food, music and excitement begins at 11 a.m. and continues until 9:30 p.m.

Returning again this year for their 13th 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, TN, will provide their specialty of German & Bavarian Music. Performing for their second year at our 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 22 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 at both Cancun Mexican Restaurants, Dylan’s Restaurant, Sears, Best One Tire (Main Street Store) and the Lace Place in Crossville, the Fairfield Glade Community Center in Fairfield and Star Realty in Lake Tansi or by calling 707-7291 or emailing jguzek@citlink.net.

  • Tracking tracks.jpg Tracking down old tracks

    It is perceived that the lumber business was profitable and extensive throughout the entire area of the current Glade and along much of the path of the described rail from the Glade all the way to Dorton. While our previous reports detailed much about the track of the Cumberland Northern, most of the reported discovery was north of Peavine and east of the four-way stop near the new Wyndham reception center (and east toward Antioch).

  • Friends group plans Elbe River cruise

    Our “Friends Traveling Together” group at Fairfield Glade was eagerly anticipating a Russia river cruise with a pre-trip to Ukraine this summer. World events, as it sometimes happens, caused us to rethink those plans. Undeterred, however, we will be embarking instead on an Elbe River cruise from Berlin, Germany to Prague on Aug. 10-22.

  • Abacus Column: Rooting for the prodigal daughter's success

    Around June of 2006, I wrote an article for the Chronicle and Glade Sun entitled, “Tonya Hinch: A Prodigal Daughter Returns to Crossville." I had been requested to meet and write about Tonya by a friend and local writer. “Why me,” I asked; “You are a good writer.” “Maybe so,” he replied; “but I don’t speak business, you do.”

  • Enjoying Nature.jpg Enjoying Nature: Keeping up with the bluebirds

    There may not be a prettier bird than our Eastern Bluebird, Sialia sialis, (pronounced cee-AL-ee-a cee-AL-iss). Bluebirds stay here in Tennessee all year, and, in the winter, you will often see groups of five or six at a time coming to your suet or mealworm feeder. But this time of year, you'll generally only see two at a time, because once a pair establishes a territory, they will chase off all potential rivals.
