There are a lot of details that go into planning different events. There are also lots of materials (signs, banners, flyers, chairs, tables, etc.) that need to be kept dry and safe before and during the event. Self storage businesses recognize these needs and step up and offer their services to fill them.
MyWay Mobile Storage is providing three storage units, with fee delivery and pick up, for the event staff’s use at the Oktoberfest that will be held in Saint Charles this weekend on September 29 and September 30. They feel that this is one way to give back to their community.
The Saint Charles festival is in its 26th year. Event planners anticipate that there will be over 50,000 attendees to enjoy the festivities. There will be German music, demonstrations, and over 50 German-themed vendors offering gifts, arts and crafts, décor, and authentic cuisine.
Other festivities include:
Parade on Main. The parade starts Saturday, September 29 at 10:00 AM. Last year’s parade included over 60 vehicles and 450 people marching or riding in the parade. They expect this parade to be similar in size. Trophies will be given in the following categories: German Heritage, Best American Pride, Most Entertaining, Most Creative, and Best Band.
JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes. Registration for the walk begins at 7:30 AM in the Frontier Park. The walk begins at 8:30 AM and is one mile long.
Wiener Takes All. This is a fun event for Dachshund owners. There will be a talent show, costume contest (for dogs only) and dog races. Prizes will also be given for the shortest and the longest wiener dog.
Root Beer 5K and 1 Mile Fun Run. These runs will begin on Sunday September 30 at 9:00 AM and go along the Riverside Drive and the Katy Trail.
Antique Car Show. The car show will go from 10:00 AM through 5:00 PM on Sunday September 30. It will be held at the Frontier Park on the Missouri River. Trophies will be awarded for Best of Show and in the different categories (antique, Model A, Chrysler, T-Bird, Mustang, Camaro, Corvette, Foreign Car, Foreign Sports Car, Truck, and Military Vehicle).
There will also be yodelers, glockenspiel dancers, singers, various bands, a beer and brats challenge, and a choir. For children, there will be clowns, movies, magic shows, wood carving, and star gazing. They can also paint a pumpkin for $5.
MyWay Mobile Storage units are 8′ x 5′ x 7′. Each container can hold about one to one-and-a-half rooms of furniture and boxes. Items such as refrigerators, king-sized beds, and sofas fit easily into the containers. The company has locations in Michigan, Pennsylvania, Missouri, Maryland, and Colorado.
