Adcock and Associates Real Estate and Auction will host a free “Oktoberfest in January” customer appreciation event from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday at Depot Park in downtown Sanford.

We don’t have many details about the event other than what’s on the flyer at Adcock’s Facebook page, but they’re offering beer and bratwursts, making it pretty hard to pass up if you like beer and bratwursts (and if, of course, you’re of age – the legal drinking age is 21; the legal bratwurst age remains in dispute thanks to the government shutdown). If you’re interested in attending, contact David Nestor at (919) 353-2020.
