Preparations are underway in Jacksonville for the 12th annual Oktoberfest this weekend.
The family-friendly event includes a mix of live music, food, dancing, and local and statewide brews.
A wiener dog competition is a new addition this year which includes a race, costume contest, and even a prize for the longest dog.
“Come on out and join us, we have something for everyone here,” Tawny Westphalen, an organizer said. “You can come to make your first Oktoberfest memories or build on years past.”
The event will run from noon to 10 p.m. Saturday at the Schoolhaus Brewhaus in Jacksonville.
