Don and Debbi Purpurra, St. Martin’s Oktoberfest chairs, expect to admit about 30,000-35,000 people along with thousands of volunteers to help make this festival one to remember.
“We really wanted to focus on the community, the socializing of friends and family,” Don Purpurra said, “not only does the festival fundraise for our outreach programs, it is an opportunity to showcase the community.”
The festival is still in need and it’s website is accepting volunteers to aid in the festivities.
