We had a blast at the 37th Annual Titus Mountain Oktoberfest on Saturday.
After a few showers, the sun came out and it got into the mid-70s – a beautiful fall day for the celebration that included live music, dozens of vendors, food galore, chairlift rides to the top of the mountain, hay rides, and fireworks.
The Kids’s Zone featured games, mechanical bull, and bounce houses, including our favorite – the Sesame Street bounce house!
Part of the proceeds from Oktoberfest go to benefit Titus Mountain’s volunteer Ski Patrol and Adirondack for Kids — a foundation started by the Adirondack Family of businesses that offers grants to nonprofit organizations supporting youth activities.
Among the vendors was retired New York State Police Troop B Commander Major Charles Guess, who was signing copies of his new book Relentless Pursuit which chronicles the 23-day manhunt in June of 2015 for the two prison inmates who escaped from Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora. Major Guess was the Incident Commander in charge of the massive manhunt that captured the two convicted murderers.
