It’s Seymour’s festive time of year — Oktoberfest.

In its 41st run, the three-day event will once again turn the downtown into a street festival celebrating the area’s German heritage with food, drinks, carnival rides, games and arts and crafts.

Booths open at 11 a.m. Thursday. The Seymour High School Marching Owls concert and opening ceremonies will take place at 5 p.m. that day on Third Street across from the old police station. The festival will end its 2013 run at 11 p.m. Saturday.
