“Despite a raging rainstorm at admittance time, the second annual Oktoberfest on Oct. 7, sponsored by Hilltop Farm and the Town of Suffield, was a resounding success,” according to event director and Hilltop board member Joe Gervascio.
Over 300 area residents attended, feasting on a dinner from Old Country Catering of Enfield and enjoying unlimited beer, wine and soft drinks from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., said Gervascio.
Notable was the large group of dancers and partiers in the tent pitched nearby, he said. “They really enjoyed rocking to the tunes of Organized Chaos of Simsbury. It was great to see so many people having fun right here in Suffield on a Saturday night.”
Gervascio thanked the volunteers who helped set up, break down and manage the event. He said they included The Friends of the Farm at Hilltop board members, town government people, local residents and Suffield High School students.
He also thanked event sponsors United Gear, Peoples Bank, Kessler Kennel Farms, Blue Diamond Paving, M&T Bank, Dave Berube Ameriprise and Broad Brook Brewing.
