BUTTE - Several blocks of Park Street in uptown Butte were closed today for Butte's version of Oktoberfest.
It is the 5th Annual Butte-Toberfest organized with the help of Butte's own Quarry Brewery.
13 different brewers from across Montana participated, offering 28 different brews and the event continues to grow.
This year they ordered 1000 beer glasses that come with the entrance fee. Butte-Toberfest is not only a good time but it also raises money for a good cause.

The event's organizer, Cassie said, "We're building a teaching kitchen facility for those with disabilities - all of the entrance fees gathered will go to building that. And, Butte High has their history club cooking brats today, so all the money from that goes to them."
Butte-Toberfest runs from noon until 5 p.m. on Saturday evening.
