Seldom has an Octoberfest offered so much fun so close to home. This year’s annual Spencer County Fair Octoberfest is scheduled for Saturday and promises to be the biggest and best yet.
Vendor gates will open at 11 a.m. with registration for that afternoon’s “Phantom Challenge ATV-UTV Mud Drag” starting at the same time. Main gates open up at noon and check-in for the bench-press contest begins at the same time. Registration for the day’s pageants will begin at 12:30 p.m. with Backyard Blast inflatables ready to go at 1 p.m.
The mud drag will begin at 1 p.m. with the Mr. and Ms. Octoberfest Bench Press Competition starting at the same time. Brawn will meet beauty and charm at 1 p.m. as the day’s pageants get under way.
Derby gates will open at 2 p.m. with the Awesome Auction offering all kinds of bargains at 3 p.m. See Page 6 for some of the listings.
Kids can share the Octoberfest spirit at 3 p.m. with fall festival crafts.
The Bone Stock Demo Derby will get under way at 4 p.m. with Road Kill lawnmower races at 5.
The evening’s big event will draw visitors for a night of top demolition-derby auction. The 6 p.m. Monster Smash Derby will include lawnmowers, trucks, big cars and mini cars. The event will mark the season finale for the local High Point Demo Derby Championship. That should ensure a night of thrills. See Page 8 for more information.
