Dust off your Lederhosen and join us for a day of food and fun in Nexton's beautiful Brown Family Park. The awesome folks from the Carolina Ale House will be serving up a delicious German-style menu and Sam Adams Oktoberfest beer (as well as domestics). The menu includes grilled Bratwurst, German potato salad, soft pretzels with cheese and mustard and more. Cash or credit welcome for beer and food sales. No coolers or outside food or beverage permitted. State or Government issued I.D. is required for wrist bands.
Take a seat in the Nexton Haus Beer Hall, bring a chair, or toss down a blanket and enjoy the sounds of the famous Sauerkraut traveling band -- one of the east coast's premiere Oom-Pah bands. Their musical styles include traditional "beer tent" favorites such as Leichtensteiner, Beer Barrel Polka and group-participation numbers such as The Chicken dance.
Up for a little competition? The whole family will enjoy Bocce, Cornhole, tug-of-war and other traditional Oktoberfest games hosted by Chucktown Social.
The winner of the Sam Adam's Beer Stein Hoisting competition will receive a $100 Carolina Ale House gift card. And the best dressed pooch will win a $100 Petco gift card. One adult and one child will be awarded a $25 Kickin' Chicken gift card for best Chicken dance.
Kids can spend time at KinderGarten, hosted by Rainbow Child Care, making pretzel necklaces or taking part in a mini-pumpkin toss. Even the family dog can get in on the action with a Best Dressed Dog contest (pets must be on a leash).
