One of Arnold’s two volunteer fire departments is going to try something new for a fundraiser.
Arnold Engine Co. No. 2 will host its first “Octoberfest” Oct. 15 at its social hall.
“Now that we’re actually allowed to have in-person fundraisers, we’re going to try to do an Octoberfest this year,” said Tara Boda, a firefighter in Arnold for 22 years who now lives in Washington Township.
The event will feature German food, breweries, music and raffles. Admission will be free.
Food will include kielbasa sandwiches, pretzels and cheese, German potato salad and German meatballs, Boda said.
Three breweries were confirmed — Acclamation Brewing from Verona, Sly Fox from Pittsburgh and Butler Brew Works from Butler — with two more possible.
