If you’ve never been to Oktoberfest in Downtown McKinney, this should probably be the year you go. There’s so much going on over the three-day festival, with so many opportunities to eat, drink and be merry inside those 14 blocks of beer garden.
Oktoberfest sounds like something worth driving out to the burbs for, and coming from this bitch, that’s saying something.
From brat eating contests to weenie dog races, a giant chicken dance to beer pong games of Olympic proportions, Oktoberfest is fun for all ages. Starting Friday, September 23 and going through Sunday, September 25, the schedule is packed with activities, live music performances and everything Bavarian.
Admission to the festival is free, but food, drinks and some of the activities like the carnival, petting zoo, rock climbing and more, will cost tickets. These are available for purchase at the fest, naturally. Check out more info here in the FAQs.
