RUMFORD – For more than a decade, the local Rotary Club has sponsored a fun day filled with crafts, food, booths and other events to benefit the civic organization’s many charities.

This year is no different.

The annual Octoberfest is set for 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at the former armory on Lincoln Avenue.

Dozens of craft booths offering local produce and pumpkins, herbal products, bird feeders, baked goods, soaps, baby items, books and more will be available. Many local political candidates will also have booths or be in attendance. Art work will be on display and for sale.

Children’s games and other activities, where every child receives a prize, will be set up for youngsters while their parents shop. Raffles are also planned.

The day begins with a pancake breakfast served by the Rotary’s youth organization, Interact. Pancakes will be available through lunch. Rotarian Paul Jones’ apple crisp will also be for sale.

Rumford Hospital will offer free blood pressure checks and medical advice. Jane Bubar, hospital spokeswoman and Rotary Club member, said table rentals and the breakfast will benefit the Hope Association, which provides services to developmentally delayed adults, and other Rotary charities.
