On Oct. 18 the Penticton Trade and Convention Centre will be transformed again into the traditional setting for the annual Oktoberfest celebration. The annual event includes plenty of beers, lots of music, great eats and too much fun. There will also be prizes for the best dressed and the favourite word for the evening will be Prost (cheers). All the money raised during the evening goes to charity. And oh yes, there will also be wine available. The evening gets underway at 6 p.m. and transportation will be available during the last part of the evening.
