Summer ends next week. I will be sad to see it go but I'm really looking forward to the fall.Football season is back and I'm happy for that. Hockey season will be here before you know it and I'll be smiling even more when they finally drop the puck on the 2017-18 season.

Another thing I'm looking forward to this fall is our Parlor City Oktoberfest. That will take place four weeks from Saturday. Tickets are only $10 if you get them in person now or $11 through our website. They go up to $15 day of the event. It's a family-friendly event with children 13 and under admitted free. There will be a children's area where the kids will be entertained by the zoo mobile, a bouncy house, coloring contests, and more. Not to mention the authentic German food, draft beer, and the open air photo booth. There will also be October Fest themed contests.

So feel free to dress up and join us for Parlor City Oktoberfest October 14th at Mountain Top Grove in Vestal. It's going to be a blast and you will be talking about this for years to come.
