A new event is scheduled in Wheeling this weekend -- Oktoberfest.

It will feature German food, craft beer, and plenty of entertainment.

The first-year event runs from Noon-11 p.m. at on Saturday at Centre Market.

"We had so much success in June with the Market Street Food Festival, the vendors inside saw some of their best sales ever, so we thought it was a great opportunity,” said Allison Skibo, marketing director, city of Wheeling.

Hence, Oktoberfest was started.

Live music will be played all day, and the Joseph Sisters will end the show.

Proceeds benefit improving Centre Market and the United Way.

“We will provide 60 volunteers for the festival, and we will benefit from the beer mug sales, wristbands, the tips at the beer stands, and pop and water stand,” said Jessica Rine, associate director, United Way.

Rine says the event is for the entire family and many Wheeling businesses are involved and have been preparing.
