Oktoberfest in the valley of the sun is alive and happy times and people abound! At Tempe Town Lake we get, Free Admission, Free Entertainment on four stages, 20 bands and 9 Bier gardens. A Giant Carnival, Splash Park and Free Parking. And then there is the German food, yum! It is so big, it’s on for 3 days, Oct. 1-3. More adult activities include non-stop polka, a sports lounge shops and if drink too much a Safe Ride Home Program. Maybe I should tell them to bring my Happy Schnapps combo Band to Tempe next year.
