The Fifth Annual Oktoberfest Craft & Vendor Show continued for the second weekend in a row. First North between Broadway and Minnesota Street was lined with vendor booths. The number of overall vendors was fewer than last week, but some returned for the second weekend and the customers returned as well. Many Oktoberfest traditionalists made their way to Schell’s Brewery.
