Oktoberfest means it’s time for OOMPAH IN THE PARK! And this year we’re having our event at the same time as Rotary’s annual Duck Derby, so it’s gonna be spec-quack-ular!

Duck Derby happens in the Nashua River, at the Main Street Bridge. Oompah in the Park will be at Renaissance Park on Water Street, right nearby.

Check out all the fun to be had, for kids and grown-ups alike!
