Every year near the end of September, Oktoberfest starts up in the Old World Village in Huntington Beach. Until last year, I’ve never actually stepped foot inside of it. However last year, I ended up there with some friends and it turned out to be a pretty decent event with lots of people. Seems just more like an outdoor bar if you asked me but it was still plenty of fun.
I always thought that Oktoberfest was for the adults until recently when I checked their website and learned that Wednesday and Thursday night is family night and admission is free. We round up some people and headed there last night and turns out….disappointing. On family night, there is food, beer, a band that plays, and a gymnast who also performs. But sadly, there wasn’t much of a crowd and the music wasn’t very up beat so it was hard to keep the kids entertained. While I do appreciate that it is a free event, it just didn’t have the pizzaz to go with it.
My suggestion, wait until Saturday and take the kids to the Daschund races (wiener dog races) instead since that seems to draw more of a crowd.
