Sharing is caring!

The weather today will be sunny with a high near 57 and a low around 42.

I have to say I’m a little disappointed in seeing that great forecast; the Thursday night of Autumn Glory has always been the Oompah Celebration. There was usually a Fireman’s Parade, an Oompah band, traditional German dinners, and more. All of this has been cancelled because of COVID-19.

Things are a little different this year, but! There still will be some happenings to celebrate Autumn Glory this weekend. Check out our Celebrating Autumn Glory event page for the events we know about.

At the Autumn Glory Kick-Off yesterday, the Chamber of Commerce named Terry Helbig as the 2020 Honorary Golden Ambassador of the 53rd Annual Autumn Glory Festival. Congratulations, Terry!

Garrett. 8 Cinemas is still working through the logistics of being reopened. This past week, they were closed again. They have let us know that they will be open for showings tomorrow, October 8.
