You'll see lots of "lederhosen", "bier steins" and see some fun contests like the giant beer mug run and our German bands will be playing all day long. The kids can ride the bulls, play in the "kinder garten", make crafts and dress up for the Halloween contest. And of course, there will be lots of dancing.
