TERRA ALTA, W.Va. — A 50th anniversary Oktoberfest celebration will be held on Sept. 18 at the Alpine Lake Resort in Terra Alta.

Amidst the European-style landscape, guests can expect to join in on such activities as a cornhole toss, beer stein holding competition, horse and carriage rides, crafts, face painting and food available throughout the day. There will also be a golf scramble in the morning, 50/50 raffles, a band playing from 3-6 p.m. and a prize for the best Oktoberfest outfit.

The event will be headed by property owners Bernie and Birgit Stock alongside the Alpine Lake Resort Property Owner Committee.

“This is a great event as it allows the property owners committee to welcome the community into the resort while at the same time bringing a little bit of Bavaria to Preston County. Plus, the monies raised go back to the community as donations to help with upkeep and amenities,” Bernie said.

Admission is free and open to the public, running from Noon to dark. For more information, go to www.alpinelake/oktoberfest.
