Hammer, Gerardo and Madonna, others are going back to capture the As the old rhyme says, "and this little piggy went wee wee wee, all the way to Preble County where he saw a pork festival and got his chops outta there." The Preble County Pork Fest, a 21-year tradition in Eaton, Ohio about 35 miles north of Hamilton on Ohio 127 is one of fall's premiere fests. It's not just a food fest, but that's why most people go: Pancake and sausage breakfasts start at 6:30 a.m.; Porkhaus Short Order with sandwiches and light dishes opens at 9 a.m.; a Barbecued Pork Chop Smorgasbord with chops grilled on open fires starts at 1 1 a.m. There are also contests, games, demonstrations, arts, crafts, baking contests; drinks and music. It's at Preble County Fairgrounds on Ohio 122, Saturday (until 9 p.m.) and Sunday (until 5 p.m.); free admission and parking; call 456-7273. magic of Fred and Ginger.

Bell Tower parties, modeled somewhat on Downtown Council's Parties in the Park, are for listening, for dancing and for meeting, mixing, mingling and matching. They're free, there's food, there's beer and there's each other. 5-8 p.m. in Goebel Park, near the Bell Tower in Covington's historic district.

Grab the best of the wursts at Oktoberfest I X I il Ml BY JIM KNIPPENBERG The Cincinnati Enquirer lose your eyes, take a whiff and you can almost smell it. Recognize the scent? It's the heady aroma of beer, brats, oom-pahs and half a million people flapping body parts in a chicken dance. Must be Oktoberfest. BS93BI33S2SI t v . t4 Mi i it r 4 w nO V V V Date with history Butler County Park District does it the old-FASHioned way, as John Houseman used to say, at the Pioneer Days at Governor Bebb Preserve. Most activities are in Pioneer Village, a collection of 19th-century buildings grouped into a replica of an 1812 frontier village. Emphasis is on pioneer skills blacksmithing, log hewing, weaving, soapmaking, candlemaking, hearth cookery and crafts, including broommaking, furniture, jewelry and knifemaking, wood crafts, country decorations, leather crafts and more. There's also food, drink and activities for wee children. It's noon-6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at Bebb, on Bebb Park Lane, off Ohio 126 (Cincinnati-Brookville Road) in Morgan Township. Tipoff appears Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. dumpling ($2, Wertheim's, No. 115), deep-fried pickle chips ($1, American Culinary Federation, No. 119), killer limburger on rye with a slab of onion ($2, Hilvers Catering, No. 215; $2.50, Flying Pig Tails, No. 408) bierplinsen or beer fritters ($1.50, Taste of Sherri's, No. 416) and whole roasted pig, cooked all day and carved at 5 p.m. (Don Vonderhaar Market & Catering, No. 418). Don't worry about the leftovers, either: Most have agreed to donate leftover perishables to Tri-State Harvest, which will deliver them to homeless shelters, missions and soup kitchens. About 15 booths have non-alcoholic drinks, including soft drinks, coffee, iced tea, lemonade and non-alcoholic beer (O'Doul's, No. 321). The rest of the booths are souvenirs, crafts and, for those who ate too much, Pepto-Bismol. Look for a 20-foot inflated Pepto bottle. Take a proof of purchase from one Pepto, one Sure deodorant and one Head & Shoulders to any Pepto, Sure or Head booth, and Procter & Gamble will give you a certificate for $5 worth of Oktoberfest food. Entertainment: As always, it runs all day on seven stages. Emphasis is on oompah, but there's also big-band music, singers, dancers, wandering entertainers, contests and more. New this year is an Invitational Saengerfest with German singing clubs from Columbus, Cleveland, Indianapolis, Dayton and Cincinnati competing on Fountain Square at 2 p.m. Saturday. Oktoberfest map, Page C-7. Yep. The 15th annual Budweiser Oktoberfest-Zinzinnati, biggest party in town with a yearly crowd of 500,000, runs 11 a.m.-ll p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Sunday. As always, it spreads four blocks along Fifth Street and spills into adjoining parks and plazas between Vine and Broadway. Some cosmetics are a little different this year a few booths have switched around, rides have moved down Sycamore, off the main drag, food booths have creeped further east but the basics remain the same: Close to 100 booths dish up tons of food and and gallons of drink. It should surprise no one that the very first booth, Booth No. 101 on the operational map, is a beer booth. Cincinnati can belly up to the bar at almost 25 more beer booths. About 50 booths serve mostly German food, including brats, metts and other wursts, potato pancakes, sauerkraut by dish and in balls, potato salad, Reubens, pickles on a stick and roast pork. There's also exotica: Pickled pigs feet ($1.75, Kase Haus, booth No. 327), sauerbraten and potato The Cincinnati EqnuirerGlenn Hartong Sausages of all shapes and sizes are among the many treats at Oktoberfest this weekend. mside!
