Hundreds of people enjoyed a day of live music, fun performances and good food all while raising money and awareness about senior hunger in our community.

The Pitt County Council on Aging held its Second Annual Oktoberfest Saturday to benefit its Meals on Wheels program.

The program helps feed more than 300 people everyday, the Council on Aging said.

Around 40 vendors set up tents and around 800 people participated in the event, the council said.

People could also buy a meal ticket for 20 dollars that not only got them a plate full of food, but also covered the cost of two meals for local senior citizens struggling with hunger.

The Council on Aging says this year's turnout was even bigger than last year and were excited so many people came out to enjoy the event.
