The Glen Rock Mill Inn is bringing back 2015’s popular event Glen Rocktoberfest to Ruins Park on Oct. 1, with mass quantities of good food, great beer and a jam-packed day of music on the menu.
“It’s a great outdoor venue with live music all day and seasonal beer samples. What’s not to like?” said Glen Rock Mill Inn owner Cindy Duzan.
The event takes place on Oct. 1 with several breweries offering beer samplings. With live music playing for several hours at the gritty Ruins Park venue, it’s a great chance to take in a fall afternoon.
Here’s some of the numbers that go into making the growing event:
This is the second year the Glen Rocktoberfest has taken place.
