We are just a few weeks out from the Parlor City Oktoberfest at Mountain Top Grove on October 14th, and I am ecstatic. Now, not only will there be an exclusive menu, tons of crafts and domestic beers, and vendors galore, but there is a chance for all our Hawk listeners to participate in the fun.

Doug and I busted out our lederhosen earlier in the week to get the ball rolling and have some fun, and now it’s your turn. Break out your best traditional German wear or clever outfit and come ready to sign up for the Best Dressed contest. Entrants must be at least 21 years-old and sign up with the Hawk staff by 2pm the day of Oktoberfest. We’ll be accepting both male and female contestants and our entrants will be judged by the newly crown Miss Oktoberfest. Winners will receive some great prizes like: clambake tickets for a future clambake, Oktoberfest beads, and beer hats. Come out in style, this is going to be fun.

The contests and participation doesn’t end there though. I hope you have hit the gym or have some great beer muscles, because the Parlor City Oktoberfest will feature its own Stein Holding Contest. We’ll provide the stein and “liquid,” you just need to sign up as soon as you get to Oktoberfest. Entrants must be 21 years-old and 10 (ten) contestants will be chosen at random for each contest. Winner will receive great prizes, as well as Oktoberfest beads and hats, and the opportunity to judge the Miss Oktoberfest contest later in the day!
