Williamsville's Oktoberfest kicks off Friday

Looking for Williamsville's Oktoberfest?

Just follow the wagon-drawn ceremonial "first keg" down Main Street during a parade at 3:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 22 from Williamsville's Village Hall to Island Park. Live music on the Main Stage will follow from the Frankfurters at 4 p.m. and Nerds Gone Wild at 7 p.m.

The 2017 Follow the Lederhosen 5K run and 1-mile fun walk begins at 11 a.m. Saturday. Registration for $10 includes entrance to the tent, a T-shirt, hot dog and beer.

Also Saturday, children's activities start at noon from Village Artisans, 5560 Main Street. Pick up a "kindercone" to collect candy and crafts from participating stores and restaurants throughout the village. It's a tradition on the first day of school in Germany.
