Beer, beer and more beer is in store for all those who trek out to Casselberry today for Central Florida’s “most authentic” Oktoberfest. The German American Society will have quality German beers like Hofbräu flowing like a river at this all-day event. There will be two bars at the venue slinging drinks – one inside, one outside. Complementing the hearty brews are home-cooked German dishes such as schnitzel and bratwurst. And it’s going to get loud and boisterous at this Oktoberfest: Two German bands provide attendees a greater sense of being across the pond, and the Schuhplattler Gruppe Alpenrose, known for their Bavarian costumes, will also entertain guests with classic folk dances in the Alpine tradition. Other activities include a flag parade and kids fun zone, as this is an all-ages event. This is likely your best chance to get that Oktoberfest vibe without having to go all the way to Germany, so don’t miss out.
