NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Nashville’s Oktoberfest in Germantown set new records this weekend.

“More than 143,000 people visited our historic neighborhood,” said Michael King, director of Nashville Oktoberfest.

This year’s event had the biggest turnout and the biggest pay out.

“We raised over $60,000 which is split three ways,” King said. “One is for the restoration of the neighborhood, part of the money is for the second oldest church in Nashville–Church of the Assumption–and remaining balance is for Crossroads (a pet adoption agency).”
