Saline Main Street has announced the schedule for Oktoberfest, set for Sept. 17-18 in downtown Saline. Originally a small celebration of Saline's sister city relationship with the historic Bavarian town of Lindenberg, Oktoberfest has grown into a two-day party that's become the top fundraiser for Saline Main Street, the non-profit organization working to strengthen downtown.

Executive Director Holli Andrews announced the schedule via email Sunday.

Andrews noted some of the annual events, like the wiener dog races, euchre and the cornhole tournament, will not take place this year due to crowding, a loss of volunteers and other logistics.

In addition, while Umbrella Square will still be in place on South Ann Arbor Street, the layout will be mostly the same.
