Autumn is the only season where pumpkins are judged by their personality as well as their performance in the swimsuit competition. Get to know fall's finest with today's Groupon: for $10, you get two tickets to Oktoberfest's A Street Party Named Desire, which takes place in Cocoa on October 22 at 6 p.m. (a $20 value).
At Oktoberfest, located amid the historic buildings and tree-lined corridor of Brevard Avenue, revelers clink steins full of imported German beer while noshing on authentic eats, listening to live music, and participating in a Hans & Franz look-alike contest. The Hoffbrauhaus beer garden's German vendors furnish vacant bellies with delicacies such as bratwurst with sauerkraut, candied apples, and potato bread dumplings, all prepared with locally grown ingredients when possible. Freshly lubricated gullets can then warble "Baby Got Back" during the yodeling contest or sing along to the live sounds of Vintage as fireworks explode in the background. A Miss Oktoberfest bikini pageant ensues at 11 p.m. to entrance ocular cavities like the pontifications of Nietzsche entrances a curious toddler.
