MINT HILL, NC – On Wednesday, September 28, Hurricane Ian made landfall in southwest Florida’s Lee County.  

The brutal, historic-sized Category 4 storm with winds topping out at 150 mph weakened to a tropical depression before it hit the Carolinas over the weekend, but a forecasted “washout” for the weekend meant several anticipated local outdoor events had to be canceled or rescheduled.

One event that had to be canceled due to forecasted weather was the Tina Ross Afternoon in the Park.  A tribute to the memory of late Commissioner Tina Ross, Afternoon in the Park features work from local artists, artisans and crafters in front of Town Hall.  This even is rescheduled for Saturday, April 29, 2023.

Another event that had to be postponed was Mint Hill’s 3rd Annual Oktoberfest sponsored by Pour 64 and 1st Choice Properties.  The event will now take place on October 22, the next day that German food truck Strudelteig is available.

Oktoberfest had to be rescheduled due to Hurricane Ian,” said 1st Choice Properties Owner Anna Granger.  “We are very sad about having to postpone this fun event but truly need a beautiful day to make it as fun as possible.  We realize that Mint Hill Madness is on the same day,” continued Granger, “but we will make the best of it and hope people can attend both since Mint Hill Madness is not just on one day.”

Oktoberfest will likely begin around 1:00 pm on October 22 and will end in time to catch the Mint Hill Madness fireworks show.  Pour 64 will remain open until 10:00 pm.  “We are hoping for great weather later in October,” says Granger.  “No other changes – just more time for all to prepare and pick out fun costumes!”
