On Saturday September 30th Amelia Park Arena will be hosting their Second Annual “HocktoberFest” in the Amelia Park Garden. HocktoberFest will consist of live music from the The Sam Pursey Trio, cornhole, stein holding contests, yard games, and local vendors that include Tin Bridge Brewery, Wickedly Wild Waffles and Chrissy G’s Bakery. The night will end with a 90 minute comedy show featuring Ray Harrington and Rafi Gonzalez.
The event is designed to be a fundraiser for Amelia Park Arena, to prepare the facility for the upcoming season. General Manager Billy Fellows had this to say about the event, “It’s been a year now since I’ve taken over as GM, we continue to try and spread the word that we are a non-profit arena and need the community’s support to survive.” “These new events we’ve been doing create an awesome opportunity to support the rink and have a fun time doing it.” Said Fellows.
HocktoberFest will transition from the outdoor rink to Amelia’s Garden this year. The garden is a 1.3 Acre space that provides a lot of opportunity for various activities. “It was pretty unique to do it on the outdoor rink last year but our garden is going to bring HocktoberFest to a new level” said Fellows. “We brought in a new garden caretaker and it’s looking amazing out there, looking forward to exposing it to more of our community.”
HocktoberFest is full of local vendors and individuals who just want to see the Westfield community thrive. One of those people is Chrissy G’s Bakery Manager Lee Gustafson, who is thrilled to be doing another event with Amelia Park. “We are happy as always to be able to support and work with Amelia Park Arena. We opened our business two years ago and are always looking for ways to give back to the community.” This is not Chrissy G’s first rodeo as they served their sweet treats at the event last year as well. “The first year was a ton of fun, and this year we are coming with loads of HocktoberFest themed treats, can’t think of a better way to support a non-profit than diving into a pumpkin cheesecake bar!” said Gustafson.
HocktoberFest is presented by Westfield Bank and the fundraising event will take place from 1-5pm, entry is $20 per ticket. Tickets can be purchased on EventBrite, at the arena before the event or at the door.
