Oktoberfest Time!

September 23, 2016 / editor

It is officially FALL and we couldn’t be more excited about it here at The Parker.  Now it is time to enjoy a part of fall that we love, the festivals!  From food festivals to Oktoberfests, there are several options right around us in Alexandria.  However, we think you should stay close to home and take advantage of one of the best fall festivals in the DMV area and head over to the National Harbor for Das Best Oktoberfest.

This Saturday, September 24th, the National Harbor will be the site of one of the largest Oktoberfests in our area, making you feel like you are actually in Germany.  All day long, enjoy international, domestic and local beers, wine and schnapps.  Additionally, Das Best Oktoberfest will have plenty of festival and German food, live music and several games and contests in which you could win prizes.

Now, if you are really looking to get into the Oktoberfest spirit, then you must get out your lederhosen or your dirndl {we know you have them in your closet} so you can get a free souvenir bag, and let’s be honest they’ll make for a great photo op! Also for the first time this year, Das Best Oktoberfest will kick off the day with 5k run, or for those who aren’t into running, you can participate in the 1 mile beer run.

So, get your outfits ready and get warmed up for the chicken dance and enjoy the first weekend of fall celebrating one of the best parts of the fall season, Oktoberfest! PROST (cheers)!
