08/29/2018- An event in Crivitz will raise funds to support a local agency known for going above and beyond their call of duty. The fifth annual Oktoberfest is planned for September 15th at the Crivitz Community Veterans Park. The day features live music, contests, and German fare and all proceeds benefit the Crivitz Fire Department. Fire Chief Luke Deschane says the goal is to raise enough money to outfit firefighters with new safety equipment.
Oktoberfest isn’t the only event where you’ll see Crivitz firefighters pitching in. The Department helps coordinate and participates in several community activities year-round including the Crivitz Christmas Parade, the Red, White, and Music Festival, and Fire Prevention Week. Deschane says it’s all part of an effort to really get to know the people they serve.
Oktoberfest in Crivitz runs from 11:00 AM until 11:00 PM. More information is available on the event’s Facebook page.
