Bavaria meets East Tennessee Southern hospitality Saturday when Maifest is held on the First Street square, 225 First St., in Cleveland, Tenn., from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Maifest is a German celebration of spring. There will be German music, food ($8 plate), children's activities ($5) and dress. Last year, several Wacker Chemical employees came dressed in their lederhosen and dirndles to add to the festival's authenticity.
Maifest is a fundraiser for Montessori Kinder International School's new building, needed to accommodate the school's rising enrollment.
