Hamilton Announces New Community Celebration Combining the Best of Two Previous Events
This October, Hamilton Township
will hold a brand, new two-day community celebration that combines the very
best of two previous events.
On Saturday, October 1st
and Sunday, October 2nd, Veterans Park will be the site for
Hamilton’s first-ever Oktoberfest –
combining the very best of Hamilton’s Septemberfest and Fall Harvest.
Saturday’s festivities will begin
at 3 PM, with a kick-off concert by the band, The Heartbeats. Following the performance, a fantastic
fireworks display will take place. In
between, residents will be able to enjoy food vendors and kid activities, such
as bounce houses.
Sunday’s activities will take place
from 11 AM to 5 PM and include crafters, fall-themed
music, entertainment, hayrides, a pumpkin patch, food vendors and
more. Alcoholic beverages will not be
served at, nor permitted at, this event.
“I think residents will really enjoy this
exciting new event, which combines the very best of Septemberfest and Fall
Harvest into one fun-filled weekend,” says Hamilton Township Mayor Kelly Yaede. “I hope that our entire community will come
out and help us start this new tradition.”
Township officials noted a sense that it was
finally time to make some changes to the community’s fall celebrations and to
combine Septemberfest and Fall Harvest, which took place within weeks of each
Thanks to the support of many local businesses,
such as leading event sponsors Hamilton Honda, PNC Bank, Prior Nami Business
Systems, Doctors Express and Borden Perlman, the community will be able to
enjoy this new, two-day event.
In the event of inclement weather, the rain dates
for Oktoberfest would be October 15th and 16th.
