For its version of Oktoberfest, Monroe mimics Munich in a weekend of family-themed fun and adult libations. Beer steins bubble as frolickers say "Prost!" to classic German beers, and while popular German fare such as bratwurst, schnitzel, strudels, and pretzels pair with imported brews. The main stage inspires chicken dances and modern moves with an array of bands playing traditional music by day and danceable covers by night. A Family Fun Zone keeps kids jolly with games and a root-beer garden. Vendors also supply authentic German garb and souvenirs, and thrilling games of Hammerschlagen make carpentry seem like football.
