After a successful Bricktoberfest event last year, township officials pledged to iron out a few of the kinks that popped up during the first-ever event.
Their mission, based on feedback from attendees: German food to go along with the Oktoberfest theme, and pay-one-price kids’ rides to make things easier on parents’ wallets. Both goals have been met, officials said, in anticipation of the Oct. 3 celebration.
The township council this week approved a $501 food concession contract with Tony’s Italian Sausage this weekend which, according to Council President Paul Mummolo, includes German food. There will be a minimum of six food trucks at the event with the potential for as many as 12 to participate. A variety of different foods will be sold.
The rides will, indeed, have a “pay one price” wristband option.
Bricktoberfest will kick off at 7 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 3 with a 5K run, which again features the “mayor’s challenge,” in which Mayor John Ducey will donate $5 for every runner that finishes the 5k before him to a local charity. Registration for the run can be completed online.
