Each year during the second week of October, the downtown area of Hickory, otherwise known as Union Square, holds Oktoberfest to celebrate the strong German heritage in the area. This year brought about the thirty-fourth year for the festival. Street vendors and store owners brought out their finest wares for the occasion. There was everything from delicious food to contests to live music and for the last fifteen years, a 5k.
Several employees from Martin Starnes & Associates, CPAs, P.A. (MSA) participated in the 5k run this year. Cameron Lackey placed first in his age category and sixth overall. Bailey Rhoney and Morgan Coley finished second and third in their age group. Check out the photos below of our MSA winners. We are so proud of them!
