Day one for Walhalla’s largest tourist draw

Near perfect weather is forecast for the start and opening festivities for the 2019 Oktoberfest weekend in Walhalla. The city has put in place a motor vehicle detour covering three Main Street blocks to facilitate pedestrian traffic for the downtown portion of the festival. And organizers are preparing for the annual community feed featuring authentic German food at 1 o’clock this afternoon under the big tent at Sertoma Field on highway 183.
