It’s Oktoberfest Season

Is it fall yet? October is rounding the corner, which means the season of Oktoberfest is among us. Many years ago, in the year of 1810, Crown Prince Louis, who would become King Louis I of Bavaria, invited the citizens of Munich, Germany to his marriage celebration in front of the city gates, including a horse race, a feast and the origins of Oktoberfest. Though much has changed in the past 200 years, the spirit of community gathering remains unchanged. Today, Oktoberfest is celebrated in various forms worldwide from late September through early October, with an average consumption of one million gallons of beer annually. The tradition lives on in Chatham County on October 2. Cheers!

Best of Chatham: Parks Painting

Did you know that the oldest house paints were made of milk, lime and honey? In fact, King Tut’s tomb was painted with milk-based paint. We aren’t saying you need to head to the farmer’s market to gather supplies for a new exterior look, but it’s nice to learn new trivia! The color of your house can say a lot. For example, historically speaking, a red door has symbolized a safe stop for travelers or having fully paid off a mortgage. Whatever statement you are looking to make, Parks Painting invites the Pittsboro, Chapel Hill and surrounding communities to “roll with the best.”

Best of Chatham: Schneider Stone

The weather is warmer, flowers are in bloom and students are readying themselves for the reward of summer vacation. All indicators that the months of June, July and August are upon us are reflected in an appetite for dining outdoors, passing an afternoon on the porch or constructing the ultimate neighborhood waterslide in the backyard. Spending more time at home means spending more time mixing lemonade, freezing popsicles and readying for summer barbecues in the kitchen. Schneider Stone is making your granite, marble and quartz countertop dreams come true. Like they say, “Nothing compares to the beauty of natural stone!”
