Soles 4 Souls Walk Part of Oktoberfest
The seventh annual Pinehurst Oktoberfest Celebration will be held on Saturday, Oct. 13, in the Pinehurst Arboretum.
Children's activities, including games, rides, face painting, music and contests, will be held from 2 to 5 p.m. with food and beverages available.
Festivities for adults will begin at 6 p.m., with The Little German Band and Dancers, food and beverages, and various contests. There will be a larger tent this year with seating available, and the band and dance floor are under the tent as well.
Also part of the events this year will be the Soles4Souls One-Mile Fun Walk.
This is part of a shoe drive being conducted by a local Boy Scout, Jake Chandler, for his Eagle Scout project. He is collecting shoes for youth and adults. Shoes collected are distributed around the world to those in need.
The Fun Walk will begin at 2:30 p.m. with medals given to the first 50 participants. Registration forms for the walk are available at Village Hall or the day of the event, and the cost is $10 per participant.
Donations of shoes are currently being accepted at the Village Hall at 395 Magnolia Road in Pinehurst.
"Shoes accepted can be for youth or adults, and any type of footwear will be accepted, new or old," says a spokesman.
