The weather couldn’t have been more perfect for the return of OktoPRfest to downtown Port Royal on Saturday. 

The fall event, sponsored by the Town of Port Royal and the Old Village Association of Port Royal, was making a comeback after a year away because of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Hundreds of festival-goers enjoyed the German cuisine, cold beverages and live entertainment from the Rhinelanders and the Dark Waters Project, while the younger crowd made the most of the kid-zone. 

Next up on the area’s festival schedule – this weekend’s Beaufort Shrimp Festival on Friday and Saturday in Henry C. Chambers Waterfront Park.

Despite all the hot-rods, rat-rods and exotic antiques, Jame Bollack of Beaufort won the Mayor’s Choice award with his 1967 Oldsmobile 442 convertible during the classic car show Saturday at the annual OktoPRfest.
