There should be something for everyone at the Commerce Oktoberfest Saturday.
The fourth annual Route 66 Oktoberfest will be held from 10 a.m. for 4 p.m. in the park across the street from Commerce City Hall next to the Commerce Post Office.
“We had a really good turn-out at last year's Oktoberfest,” Chester Enochs of Commerce said. “We've added a few new things and hope even more people will turn out this year.”
A car show will start things off with registration beginning at 9 a.m.
The chili cook-off will feature two different categories of chili - the “anything goes” and the competitive. Tasting and judging each category of chili will take place at noon with a different taster kit required for each category. Tasters' kits will be available at $5 each.
People are invited to bring homemade pumpkin pies for a contest at 1 p.m.
The public is invited to bring their “cutest” and the “ugliest” dogs for a contest with voting at 2 p.m. All dogs must be on a leash.
Both pony rides and wagon rides will be available with horses provided by Mike Furnas.
There will also be a “Moon Walk” for the entertainment of the children along with face painting.
There will be a variety of musical entertainment including gospel, bluegrass and country, available throughout the day and it will be free.
Seating will be provided while the public enjoys the music.
The entertainment will feature the Halls Family from 11 a.m. to noon.
Other area favorites that will perform throughout the day will be “The Gospel Travelers,” “Larry Maunte Country,” “O'Dell and the Good Time Boys,” “Lost Creek Bluegrass Band” and “Wings of Love.”
One of the final activities will be a lawn mower race at 3 p.m.
Volunteers are needed to help with the activities.
