Beet & Basil Restaurant in Sandpoint will be hosting a special Oktoberfest fundraiser for the East Bonner County Library on Sunday, Oct. 15 from 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
The family-friendly event includes German-style street food, live music, German beer specials, oversized Jenga, oversized Connect Four, a rope-jousting tournament, prizes, giant Checkers and dice. There will also be das boot races, housemade pretzels and mustards, a kids’ area that features pumpkin painting and tea light lantern decorating.
Beet & Basil, 105 S. First Ave., will donate a portion of the proceeds raised to the East Bonner County Library District, which includes libraries from Sandpoint and Clark Fork. This all-ages event is open to the public.
