The Historic Germantown, Inc. website makes it official, with what looks like an interesting mascot. There will be two street festivals in October, but only one will be called "Oktoberfest." One person's "changing dynamics and popular development of the area" is another's schism. It's the closing-one-door-opens-other-ones cliche (which looks like diluting a brand). Who's splitting hairs?
The Tipsy Raccoon Fest is slated to extend across the tracks right up to Salemtown's doorstep, Hume Street. No word on whether someone will don a raccoon mascot costume, scare the S-town kids out of Morgan Park, and assume the name "Tipsy the G-town Raccoon."
