Choccolocco Heritage Society Octoberfest
The Choccolocco Heritage Society will present its annual Octoberfest this Saturday, October 18th from 8AM until 2PM. The festival began in 1985 with a Post Office birthday festival and has continued every year since. Choccolocco Heritage Society Spokeswoman Georgia Calhoun says there is something for everybody. Calhoun says it’s a time for people to come out and just enjoy Choccolocco. All the children who attend tomorrow’s activities will receive cash and candy. And that is thanks in part to Commissioner Tim Hodges who is sponsoring the festival. Also, winners of the Choccolocco Yard Beautification Contest will be announced at the Octoberfest. The festival will take place at the Community Center Quad Cities Fire Department on Iron City Cutoff Road.
