Street closures announced for Saturday’s Oktoberfest

The Capital Ale House Oktoberfest scheduled for Saturday from noon to 10 p.m. will close the 800 and 900 blocks of Caroline Street, the city of Fredericksburg announced today.

Those two blocks plus the 100 and 200 blocks of George Street will be closed to through traffic during the event so the areas can be used as additional space for the event.

The closures will stretch from 4:30 a.m. Saturday until 2 a.m. Sunday to allow for set up of the event and post-event clean-up.

The city  has posted a map outlining the event area.

For more information on the event, check out this post by reporter Bill Freehling.
