Turned Leaf Festival offers alternative Oktoberfest festivities

A non-alcoholic alternative to the traditional Oktoberfest festivities Saturday was the annual Turned Leaf Family Fest.

The festival offers a chance for people to celebrate Oktoberfest without any alcohol.

Events for the festival included kids’ games, live music, door prizes and more.

Cheryl Hancock, executive director for Coulee Council on Addictions, said it’s a great opportunity for everyone to celebrate the weekend.

“It’s a joyful thing for them to be able to come together and in a safe alcohol free environment and also be part of the community,” Hancock said

This was the 35th year for the festival.
