Oktoberfest comes and goes with a collective community bang
The two-day festival in downtown Lee’s Summit set a record for food and beverage sales
The Lee’s Summit Chamber of Commerce’s 23rd annual Oktoberfest took advantage of nice weather, more vendors, and more arts and crafts to bring in what the Chamber is calling a record number of receipts for food and beverage.
The two-day festival held Sept. 28-29 in downtown Lee’s Summit was hopping with family-friendly fun and activities and the Lee’s Summit Chamber of Commerce couldn’t have been more thrilled.
“This year’s Oktoberfest had exceptional weather, record crowds, more arts and craft booths than ever before,” said Nancy Bruns, Chamber president. “While we don’t have all the receipts and expenses in yet, the receipts for food and beverages did break our previous records. We cannot thank our nearly 300 volunteers enough for all of their help in making this festival a huge success.”
