2009 Oktoberfish winners
The sudden change that occurs every year at this time is amazing. Labor Day weekend saw large crowds of boaters, with restaurants and local bars full up. Today, as I gaze upon Scenic Bay, the loudest sounds are the fish swimming by.
But wait. Summer is not over here just because many flee the area. We are entering what is called, Indian Summer. The big fall Oktoberfish contest is on.The derby will be held Saturday and Sunday, October 4 and 5.
