Zanesville High School wasn’t the only place Octoberfest activities were taking place. The village of Dresden celebrated for the second year in a row. Cobblestone Gallery owner Glenn Newman suggested the idea last year, and the Dresden Village Association backed him up. Now, they plan on making it an annual event. They believe they add some authenticity to Octoberfest because Tricia Kidd, Dresden Village Association director, said Dresden, Ohio is named after Dresden, Germany. There was live entertainment throughout the afternoon, but staying with the German theme, a few ladies wore dirndl, traditional German ladies garb. Besides the authentic attire, the day also featured German food like sauerkraut and bratwurst, along with some local favorites like home-made ice cream and kettle popped corn.
