A spectacle of German dancing, keg tossing, and beer drinking takes over Tampa Bay Downs during this year's Oktoberfest celebration. The festivities will feature live oompah bands and folk dancing troupes every night, with a soundtrack of accordions and slapping shoes coaxing visitors into dancing or joining log-sawing and barrel-rolling competition.
The food will center on German sausages and Hofbrauhaus chicken. There will be plenty of Rhine wine and draft beer available for adults. Kids can fill up on candy in between attractions at the carnival and midway.
