Oktoberfest is this weekend in uptown Kearny

The Copper Basin Chamber of Commerce calendar of activities is ready.

Oktoberfest Street Fair and Car Show begins at noon on Friday. This is a good time to find out what’s new among the vendors who are local entrepreneurs and check out the local merchants who also have fall décor on their shelves. At the Alden Street mall you will find Dottie Schaub with her crochet towels and jewelry; ROTC, pastry; Ray Federal Credit Union, First Mortgage and Catalina Automotive; Missy Foster with purses, wallets and shirts; Barb Carrell, rugs and blankets; Stand off Grid, hand made jewelry; Dee’s Homemade hats, purses and tutu’s; Pampered Chef; Cindy Williams, jams and jewelry; Hearing Center; Snap Ed, information; Kim Garcia, It Works Wraps; Kaki’s Creations, handmade candles, soap and bath crystals. There are two separate booths for the American Cancer Relay for Life: Find Les Grable with crochet and knit products and Danette Young with artistic custom made jewelry. Plan ahead for Christmas. This is a great way to support your local vendors and get a head start on your Christmas shopping.

Choices for food include Magee’s Fry bread, funnel cakes and curly fries; Knights hamburgers, brats and hot dogs; and grilled corn from CAC Aravaipa. Most booths will stay open through the evening and at sundown the movie Hunger Games will be shown on Alden Street.

Road closures on Alden Street begin at 6 a.m. Friday until 5 p.m. on Saturday.

Registration for the car show begins at 8 a.m. on Saturday next to the Kearny Drug. Raffles will take place every 15 minutes at the Apache Gold Stage. Check out the array of prizes and purchase tickets at the stage. Purchase tickets ahead at the chamber office. Split the Pot tickets are also available. Both are $1 each or six for $5.

The Good Shepherd Express will run all day at no cost to the children. There will be an array of inflatables for the youth who can participate all day with the purchase of a five dollar bracelet. These items are brought to us by All About Parties. They are the same company that the town of Hayden and St Joseph’s used for their festival these past two weeks. Junior chamber members are earning money for their scholarship fund with pie throws and sponge throws. Event Wizard will be set up by the Pinal County building with an array of carnival games and children can go to ACE Hardware for something new and different.

Visit the Copper Corridor trailer to view what is new in North Eastern Pinal County.

As soon as the car show awards are complete the hot dog eating contest, sponsored by the Blazers Softball Team, will begin for people of all ages. Sign up during the day at the chamber information area in front of the Pinal County building.

Put these dates on the calendar. Attend the Great Pumpkin and Trunk or Treat on Alden Street on Saturday, Oct. 26. If there is to be a Haunted House, volunteers are needed immediately. Halloween is Oct. 31 and the night for trick or treating. Winter Wonderland and the Electric Light Parade are scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 6. The Chamber Annual Meeting and Citizen of the Year awards will be held on Feb. 24. The Women’s Expo will be March 8 and the Pioneer Days are scheduled for March 20 through March 23.

We hope to see you at all of these events.
