Every October, the ski resort at Whiteface Mountain has a small Oktoberfest. Traditional German music, food, beer, and demonstrations are featured, and many local vendors come to show off their homemade crafts.
This is the first time I've gone in many years, and the first time I went being older than 21! It's a ton of fun and is definitely worth checking out if you're in the area during the skiing offseason.
The atmosphere at these events is always awesome, it's friendly and inviting. And I'll never forget the angry-sounding accordionist saying "Drink the beer, Now" in his thick accent.
Beer connoisseur? Does your town hold an Oktoberfest? Tell me about it in the comments!
