Ways to Celebrate Oktoberfest with Kids

My birthday is in October, and luckily for me, every beer garden in the world has decided to throw me a party complete with live music, tons of people and – of course – giant steins of beer. Now, I’m not delusional enough to think that every Oktoberfest in Long Beach is actually thrown in celebration of my birthday, but that doesn’t mean that I didn’t spend many years taking full advantage of this easy to throw party. I mean, who doesn’t want to go to Oktoberfest?!? But the harder question is, Who wants to go to Oktoberfest with kids?

Not me.

Standing in front of a large crowd chugging a stein of beer just doesn’t have the same appeal when my three kids are part of the audience. But the truth is that somewhere along the line I ended up enjoying so much more about Oktoberfest than just the beer. And I found myself wanting to find a way to share some of that with my kids. Here are some cool ideas of ways to celebrate Oktoberfest with your kids.

Just because you have kids doesn't mean you can't rock Okctoberfest! #oktoberfestwithkids #oktoberfestlongbeach #oktoberfestlb #alpinevillage #alpinemarket #octoberactiviteswithkids #octoberwithkids #fallactivitieswithkids #kidsandbeer #germankids #teachingkidsaboutoktoberfest #oktoberfestcrafts #oktoberfestcraftsforkids
