Big Canoe’s annual Oktoberfest Arts & Crafts Show on Saturday, Oct. 13 at the Wildcat Recreation area was a winner. The weather was spectacular, the crowd enthusiastic and the variety of vendors and activities sure to please attendees of all ages and interests.

“For Oktoberfest, I'd just like to thank the Big Canoe POA employees and volunteers for their dedication and positivity during the festival,” Kim Cooper, the POA’s event and program manager, said in an email to Smoke Signals. “We had a record-breaking attendance, and despite the challenges with the food service, the event was very fun, entertaining and we hope everyone enjoyed it.”

Big Canoe property owners and their guests browsed—and shopped—through rows of white tents filled with more than 50 arts and crafts vendors plus community organizations. Smoke Signals invited Big Canoe authors Bill Booth, Lou Reiter and Wayne Crawford to sign and sell books. BCAR brought its furry guests to mix and mingle.

The beer wagon, food trucks, kids’ corner, vintage cars and the German Oompah band delighted adults and children of all ages and interests. And, our four-legged friends had a great time checking each other out, sniffing everything in nose reach—even passersby—and rolling in the grass.

Lass uns das nächstes Jahr wiederholen.
(Let’s do this again next year).
