According to event organizers, the city of Oakland is dressed and ready for their biggest festival of the year. The Autumn Glory Festival, which has been listed as the No. 1 fall festival in the world by MSN.com, kicked off last night at Wisp Resort. Tonight will feature the Fireman’s Parade and Oktoberfest at the Oakland Fire Department. On Saturday, during the Grand Feature Parade, the streets will be lined with floats, as well as food and craft vendors. As part of the festival’s decorations this year, several parking meters in downtown Oakland were decorated. Oakland businesses and nonprofit organizations ornamented the meters as part of a fundraiser. The proceeds gathered will benefit the newly restored Oakland B&O Train Station Museum. Residents and visitors have been able to vote for their favorite meter since Oct. 1. Voting will continue through Sunday. According to event organizers, people may vote for their favorite by putting change in the meter. The Oakland B&O Train Station Museum will be open this week and throughout the weekend. Hours of operation will be from 10 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday. Admission is free to the Oakland B&O Train Station Museum, the Transportation Museum and the Garrett County Historical Society Museum.
