Octoberfest set for Oct. 13

Oct. 12, 2012 @ 12:00 AM

HUNTINGTON -- The Forest Hills Neighborhood Association and Walnut Hills Action Team will host an Octoberfest from noon to 5 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 13, at Gallaher Village Square.

Gallaher Village Square is a new community park neighborhood groups have built this year. It is located on the old Gallaher Elementary School site at the corner of Norway Avenue and Gallaher Street.

Entertainment will include a street art festival for adults and children, pumpkin painting and free chair massages by Invidia Salon and Spa. The Huntington Fire Department also will have a fire engine on the Cabell County 911 Center parking lot for children.

Food vendors will include FireSide Grille and The Wild Ramp. The Forest Hills Neighborhood Association also will have a hot dog sale and bake sale. A portion of the food sales will go to the family of a Cabell County 911 operator whose child is suffering from a serious illness.

Area residents are encouraged to walk to Octoberfest, but parking will be available at the following locations: the old Berryhill House parking lot; Walnut Hills Church of the Nazarene; behind Dr. George Beldon's office on Norway Avenue; Beverly Hills Carpet Center; Beverly Hills United Methodist Church; and Beverly Hills Presbyterian Church. Guests are asked to refrain from parking on Gallaher Street.
