Ponca City is welcoming October with open arms by hosting Oktoberfest this weekend. Oktoberfest is known for its beer and brats, but this weekend will have something for everyone. There will be the typical arts and crafts, food and beer garden. Brook Lindsay, Oktoberfest coordinator said they have added some new kids activities though.
"As a special treat we’ll have a sing along with a princess," Lindsay said. "That will be Saturday at 11 and then again on Sunday at 1. What that is, we’ve got a young girl coming dressed as Elsa from Frozen and she’ll be performing a variety of Disney classics for the children that day."
They will also have the zorb balls there, which are the popular plastic balls kids can roll around in. The Thunder girls are also coming back. As for the adults they’ll have the sports tent playing the OSU and OU game, with NFL games in between. Lindsay said there is also new performers this year.
"W e have Super Freak out of Oklahoma City," Lindsay said. "It’s a 70s funk and disco band. They’ll actually come dressed in their big afros and 70s clothes. They’re really good at interacting with the crowd and they are a lot of fun."
Oktoberfest is from 10 to 7 on Saturday and 11 to 5 on Sunday. Admission is $4 and kids six and under get in free. Lindsay said there is limited parking at the mansion. However, there is plenty of parking at JcPenny’s north lot and a shuttle will be running both days.
