BradtoberFest 2016 was a rousing success!

The 4th annual BradtoberFest Run/Rawk/Crawl took place in Duluth, MN, on Sunday, October 2, continuing the tradition of fall Friends of Brad events in the merry spirit of Bavaria’s famous Oktoberfest celebration.  With incredible original music, fantastic weather, and lots of shenanigans, the event was a great success!  Kind thanks to all our generous sponsors and supporters!

Proceeds benefit young musicians, supporting programs such as the Duluth Music Resource Center and FOBMF‘s scholarship, fellowship, and other charitable programs.
