Stanstead Journal - - FORUM - Vic­to­ria Vanier

Oc­to­ber will come early to Stanstead, this month, with the Stanstead Re­cre­ation As­so­ci­a­tion’s first Oktoberfest which takes place on Satur­day, Septem­ber 17th, from 4:00 to 11:00 pm. A huge tent will be set up right in the mid­dle of the Stanstead Stone Cir­cle for the event which will fea­ture the tra­di­tional Oktoberfest menu of sausages, sauer­kraut and beer. “We’ll have four kinds of beer from the Si­boire brew­ery, in Sher­brooke,” said Marise Trepanier, the town’s re­cre­ation co­or­di­na­tor. “Peo­ple pay for the first beer but they get to keep the mug as a sou­venir,” she ex­plained. An­other Que­bec busi­ness will sup­ply the Ger­man sausages.

There will be chil­dren’s ac­tiv­i­ties as well, in­clud­ing in­flat­able games from 4:00 to 7:00 pm, and the rock band Mec Trio will pro­vide live mu­sic through­out the day and evening. Mem­bers of the Stanstead fire de­part­ment will pro­vide a big bon­fire on site to keep ev­ery­one warm and fire­works will be set off by the award­win­ning FAE Py­rothech­nie be­tween 9 & 10 pm.

“There won’t be any ta­bles or chairs so peo­ple will have to bring their own chairs if they want to sit down,” added Ms. Trepanier.
