According to orbitz.com and USA Today Seattle is one if the world’s top places to toast to a tradition that has now been celebrated for 200 years, which is free and open to all ages. Just do not let your kids drink and drive.
Known as the Oktoberfest, this celebration is most popular in the Fremont neighborhood in the Seattle Washington area. A microbrew tasting garden which will cost you around $40.00 is hosted where over 80 different beers can be sampled. By the time you are finished sampling all 80 beers you may begin to get a little tipsy. It is time to call in the nanny if your kids are with you.
You can also receive German beers by the glass during the Buxom beer Garden and the Village beer Garden. The music industry even provides a large amount of entertainment for the Oktober-fester involved.
Not only, is there an innumerable amount of beer to drink from, and loud music to bust a move to, but there are also contests that you can try your drunkard hand at. These contests include but are not limited to the Texas Chainsaw Pumpkin Carving Contest, Dog modeling, and the Miss Buxom Contest. Each contest is fun filled and leaves everyone smiling and filled with laughter and joy once the contest is over.
Included in the Oktoberfest are traditional German food booths, a kid’s area with racing and root beer taste. Let us not forget the arts and craft areas that are available for your use during this beautiful fest.
Fremont also holds the Oktoberfest Brew HA-HA 5K run which caters to the drunken ones by hosting a beer belly division. It the run really is not what you want to do you can feel free to participate in the street scramble scavenger hunt for treasures among the Fremont neighborhood.
In between your “festing”, you can dress the Fremont statues to make them feel more festive and then go on about your celebrating.
This is a fest that you will definitely enjoy with the whole family. Just remember to drink responsibly and make sure there is someone available to watch your kids if your mind begins to feel a little foggy.
