Lexington's Pine Press Printing celebrated fall by hosting its Oktoberfest event Friday. 

Guests gathered outside of the store to enjoy food, beverages, music, bounce houses, face painting, a photo booth and a silent auction.

Pine Press Oktoberfest served as an outreach to the community as all proceeds benefited the Midlands Special Needs Foundation.

"We've done this event for over twenty years," said Lori Moroz, owner of Pine Press. "And we've done it for ten tears now where we give back to Midlands Special Needs, the joy day program and that's just one of the most important things to us besides just being part of the community and having a nice open house."

The nonprofit, faith-based organization serves special needs individuals and their families in the Midlands. A variety of programs and activities are offered to those who utilize its services.

Moroz said the event ended up a success after having to go on a hiatus in 2020 due to the pandemic. 

"It's actually very wonderful, it's a lot of hard work in the week that it builds up to, but it ends with a great party and just giving back and having folks that you haven't seen in years now because of not doing it last year, so it's really wonderful to do it this year," she said.
