Ascension Lutheran Church’s Oktoberfest Celebration is Oct. 13 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. There will be many activities for the kids, including a bounce house and slide, face painting, pumpkin decorating, carnival games with prizes and a program by Wild Animal Encounters.
For the adults there will be a “Taste of Germany” food court, a bier garten with beer by Brewmasters, and a community information fair.
This event is a love offering from the Ascension Lutheran congregation to the Wilson community, and there will be no admission fee.
All of the activities are free.
There will be collection jars at each activity for donations designated for Veteran Residential Services of Wilson, a non-profit organization providing assistance for veterans with housing needs. VRS will have a booth at the community fair to explain more about its programs and to answer questions.
The church is located at 2512 Nash St. N.
