After a one-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Septemberfest returned to downtown Ripon last week Saturday.

The highlight of the event was the 22nd-annual Watson Street Car Show and 10th-annual Classic Motorcycle Show as cars and vehicles lined Watson Street and nearby parking lots.

While the vehicles were one of the main draws, there also was a pancake breakfast hosted by Ripon Noon Kiwanis, music by the Tuba Dan Band and The Presidents, a tour of homes sponsored by Ripon Rotary, a cornhole tournament, food and beverages from local service groups and a visit from the Wisconsin Spudmobile.
