West Hickory Street Oktoberfest’s Four Annual 5K Fun Run & Costume Contest
Brought to you by Friends with Benefits • Denton – the most fun charity work in North Texas
Lace up your sneakers and lederhosen! Join us for the 12th Annual West Hickory Street Oktoberfest on September 29th brought to you by Lucky Lou’s, Cool Bean’s, Shots & Crafts, and Caskey’s! Get ready for a day full of events, entertainment, and BEER!
The day starts off with our 4th Annual – 100% for charity – 5K Run and Costume Contest! This year’s event will be benefiting three local non-profit organizations: Stop the Stigma, Denton Animal Support Foundation’s Safe Haven Program, and G.O.A.L.
Following the 5K, venues along West hickory Street will have live music, food, weiner dog races, stein hoists, das boots, and more! Your four neighborhood bars will be donating 10% of the days sales to the above mentioned charities, so even though the event ends at 5pm (so everyone can root for UNT football!), you can party all night to support a good cause!
