There was a long line for bratwursts and beer at the Gulf County Chamber of Commerce’s PortOberfest celebration on Sept. 23 as members of the community came out to enjoy the sunny weather and a celebration with friends and neighbors.
The event featured booths from local art and clothing vendors, live music by Dirty Little Billy, Oktoberfest beer from local breweries and bratwursts supplied by chamber volunteers.
“I think PortOberfest this year went amazing,” said Chamber DIrector Joe Whitmer. “The brats were awesome, our chef was amazing, the beer was cold and the music was hot.”
“We were really happy with our turnout, and what we would hope for in the future would be to get some more sponsorship and to make PortOberfest an even bigger celebration.”
Whitmer said that the Chamber is looking forward to hosting the community again for the Forgotten Music Festival, which will be happening Oct. 7 and 8 at George Core Park.
