“OKM is very excited this year to collaborate with Cooper & Mill Brewing Company, Scissortail Brewing Co. and The Nook Brew Co. and Crossing 2nd for the highlight of Oktoberfest, the Bavarian brews,” said Mary Lynn Mihm, OKM Music’s Board Chairman. Traditional German food, including brats, apple strudel and pretzels, along with other delicious foods and sweet treats will be available for purchase during the duration of the event.
Oktoberfest will have the traditional games and entertainment you know and love such as Hammerschlagen, Chicken Dance Contest, raffles, Beer Stein Race, Beer Stein Competition and a live auction for Bedlam tickets. Kids will again enjoy face painting, Lebkuchen (cookie) decorating and more. OKM Music is adding new activities like Penny Toss and Beer Blind Tasting for the adults; The Money Machine and Phone Scavenger Hunt for the teens; and Animal Toss game and bouncy house for the kids; and an exciting game called Zufall (Oktoberfest-themed cake walk) for all ages. Guests participating in the games and contests will win prizes.
