Oktoberfest of 2020.
It was a cutback and toned-down version of the Oktoberfest’s of the past.  On a positive note, it was perfect weather over the weekend with an autumn breeze and bright sunlight to show off the fall colors.  Even with the present weather, the numbers were down according to many of our small business owners.  Normally, Oktoberfest is attended by thousands of people, the lion’s share from Chicago and its suburbs.  The virus has had its impact. There is no doubt with the uptick in cases in Wisconsin that many tourists decided to stay home.  Winterfest is the next large planned celebration, which is currently scheduled to go on sometime in late January of 2021
