Are you excited about Oktoberfest? Well you don't have to travel all the way to Munich to take part in the festivities. Start shopping for your Osoyoos hotel and make your way to this Okanagan Valley town for the area's Octoberfest 2013. Presented by the Spirit of the Game society, this annual event is held Oct. 12 and celebrates the fall harvest with music, libations and a whole lot of family-friendly fun.
Octoberfest 2013 has a little something for everyone. Explore the flavours of local breweries in the beer garden and taste the German fare crafted by some of BC's favorite culinary artists. There will also be also horse rides, a bouncy house and a variety of games to keep the kids entertained. Throughout the event, musicians will take to the stage to perform live – the lineup features Great White North, Wined It Up and Crowd the Joanna, among others. You'll also have the chance to carve your own pumpkin and create your very own scarecrow.
The event will be held at the Oliver Community Stage in the Oliver community, which is located a short drive from the lovely accommodations of the Walnut Beach Resort. Whether you're bringing the whole family down to Osoyoos or inviting that special someone for a weekend retreat, you can enjoy the hotel's spectacular views and sophisticated, carefully-crafted designer suites.
