The Lake Lanier Olympic Park is closing out its event season with Laketoberfest, a souped-up food truck Friday featuring a few truck regulars, live music and plenty of German beer.

Laketoberfest is the first Oktoberfest-style event for the park and signals the end of its warm-season events — its regular food truck Fridays, concerts and other events held above the grandstands on the tower side of the Clarks Bridge Road park.

It begins at 6 p.m. Oct. 26 and is the “last really big festival-style food truck event of the year,” said James Watson, manager of the park, adding that he hopes the event becomes a repeat for the park. 

Tap It on Thompson Bridge Road is providing the beer, while Caleb Davidson is performing.

The event costs $10 at the door and comes with a souvenir cup and one drink ticket.
