Warm pretzels speckled with sea salt. Steins of cold beer. Live music. These are just a few of the reasons to attend Las Olas Octoberfest, an annual bash held in Huizenga Park. The fest draws on the traditions of the original Oktoberfest, a yearly celebration that kicked off in Munich in 1810. One of those traditions is a stein-holding contest, during which contestants lift beer steins with or without the beer-drinker hanging on to the stein's handle.
