Utica Music Fest keeps gettin' better
There are so many exciting things being planned for September's third Utica Music and Arts Fest, I begged the organizers to let me announce some of them - or at least one of those events.
So, here's the first: The Balkan-Hadley, next to the Uptown Theatre, will be hosting an Oktoberfest within the festival this year.
The fest within the fest will feature German food, live German music, ranging from traditional to progressive and a selection of German beers.
If I knew some celebratory German words, I would list a whole string of them, but I don't, so a good ol' American hooray is as good as it gets.
