Oktoberfest brings the flavor of Germany to CL


The Canyon Lake Chamber of Commerce’s 8th annual Oktoberfest will bring the flavor of Germany to the Canyon Lake Towne Center on Saturday, Sept. 29, from 4 to 9 p.m.

Canyon Lake’s Oktoberfest is a family-friendly event featuring live music by the American Bavarian Brass Band, traditional food, beer and wine garden, dancing, contest, kids zone, carnival games, more than 20 vendors and a special appearance by Thunder of Storm Stadium. This year’s contests include stein holding, beer drinking (non-alcoholic), hot dog eating and jalapeno eating. Prizes will be awarded to the winners.

An ID and wristband are required for alcohol purchases. Beer tickets are $5 each. Oktoberfest commemorative mugs will be available for purchase for $5 per mug.

Following Oktoberfest, the chamber will be hosting its 26th annual Parade of Frights on Saturday, Oct. 27, at 9 a.m. Parade of Frights brings costumed children to the Towne Center to trick-or-treat at more than 30 businesses. This historic event draws hundreds of children each year and features carnival games, costume contests, bounce house, music and a special appearance by Thunder of Storm Stadium. The chamber is seeking sponsors for this event.
