The Creekside Restaurant is sponsoring the second annual Oktoberfest Celebration. It starts at noon, tomorrow (Oct. 24) in front of the restaurant.
The flier says “Booze, Brats and Bands (okay Bud Lite John).” The theme is German wine tasting and bratwursts. For $12 participants get three drink tickets to try whatever they’d like and a brat! I can think of hardly a better place to be in autumn than up in Christopher Creek.
Judy Tolle of the Christopher Creek Homeowners Association has some frighteningly fun announcements for Halloween. Oct. 24 at 9 a.m. a Halloween Celebration will be hosted at the Christopher-Kohl’s Fire Station. This is for kids 12 and under. At 4 p.m. the Christopher-Kohl’s Fire Station will have hot dogs and chips for everyone. Then comes the costume contest at 4:30 p.m.
Followed by the ever-popular wagon rides starting at 5 p.m. Please bring treats! Also, for those living on Columbine and Ashby-Apple please leave lights on if you are planning on providing treats. Don’t worry you’ll hear the screaming kids coming. For more information, please call Judy at (928) 478-0508.
Concert under the stars
Paula of the Tall Pines Market is heading up a “concert under the stars” right out front at Wheeler Inn. The date is Monday, Oct. 26 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Lynda St. John will be playing music. This is a bring your own dish, bring your own drink, bring your own chair event. The cost for the event is $10 per person.
Parking will be right out in front of the ERA Realty building across the street. For more information, see or call Paula at the Tall Pines Market or call her home at (928) 478-4771.
Also, for those of you who don’t know, Christopher Creek Lodge built a community dog park called the Christopher Creek Critter Corral. It is a place where good folks can let their dog off the leash in an enclosed area and sit near the creek while their dogs have fun. It is completely free, but we do ask that you be responsible and clean up after your dog and help keep the place in good shape so that it can be enjoyed for years to come.
The dog park is located between the Landmark and Christopher Creek Lodge. For more information on the dog park, you can visit www. paysondogpark.com.
