Fremont Oktoberfest - More Than Beer

Fremont OktoberfestFremont Oktoberfest

This weekend is Fremont's Oktoberfest, a traditional kick-off to the Fall season.  Friday September 24 through Sunday, September 26, three full days of Drink and Play!, one day of Running:

This is the the first time I will be attending Fremont's Oktoberfest, so I studied up on what to expect and thought I would share. 

Drinking Features: Beer, I don't know much about it, but I'll probably learn a little on Friday.  There is a West German beer tent and an East German beer tent in the Stranger Microbrew Garden.  Also, Pyramid Brewery has a Beer Garden, And Deschutes Brewery has a Lounge, Plus there is the Widmer Brothers Lounge.  And the Blue Moon Lounge.
Lastly, the Buxom Beer Garden is where you get your 1 liter German beer stein.  I guess I'll find out more about that too!

Oh! And a wine Lounge, yay! Just a couple of Argentinian wines to try here though...

Fremont OktoberfestPlay Features:
Non stop entertainment with bands on two stages.
The Texas Chainsaw Pumpkin Carving on Saturday and Sunday. 
Sunday is Dogtoberfest.  Your dog is welcome this day for doggie water tasting and the "Strut Your Mutt" modeling contest.  I may be trying this out, I mean Bowser may be trying this out!
Also a kids area with fun activities planned like pumpkin bowling, zucchini racing and Hansen's soda tasting.

Running Features:
Fremont Oktoberfest
Brew HA-HA 5K - This is the 8th annual run.  They even have a beer belly division.  And people dress in fun Bavarian costumes.
And my favorite  - the Scramble.  This is similar to a scavenger hunt, you look for clues in 30 locations in 90 minutes.  The exact locations are not always easy to figure out.  Super fun - I'm doing this with Bowser.

More details are on their website.
If you see me, say "hi"!
