Contests and Dancing at the Big Bear Oktoberfest

The chugging contest is pretty straightforward. There are only two

divisions: Men and Women. Choose wisely. Held at 8:00 on Saturday nights, all you have to do is stand in a line with the other contestants. On the mark, you must drink a full liter of non-alcoholic O'douls as fast as possible and turn the stein over on your head. Anyone may enter the contest. I don't have any tips, other than recommending an empty stomach and jovial attitude. Be sure you're in time for this one! This contest goes loud and fast!

Competition got you? Too much excitement? Not enough excitement? You didn't win any contests? You didn't ENTER any contests? You need to get up and dance! The Express Band knows how to keep a show going. We've seen Polkas. We've seen Waltzes. We've seen Line Dances and the Twist.

I'm even wondering if I saw the Bunny Hop one year. (Okay, if you don't know what that is, you're from a younger generation.) If the Chicken Dance can't bring your energy up, maybe the Pizza Hut song can! We're simple folk and it doesn't take much to get into a party. We're still doing the Hokey Pokey!..."You put your left foot in...."

By the way, did you know that you can get a ride home after your party at the Oktoberfest? From 6:00pm until closing on Saturday nights if you prefer not to drive, a complimentary shuttle will take you home.

There are also facilities for any Designated Drivers. Mention to one of the staff that you are the DD of your group, and you'll receive a wrist band ID. 'Designated Driver Pitstops' provide unlimited complimentary sodas, coffee, and bottled water during your Oktoberfest visit.

All in all, attending the Big Bear Lake Oktoberfest is a fantastic time and good memory to cherish. You will find yourself speaking about your experience for years to come. We're not Las Vegas! What happens in Big Bear is something you'll want to share with your family and friends. In fact, they may not let you forget it! You did bring your camera? You can use it to convince them to come next year.

Keep Autumn in Big Bear on your calendar. Line up your lodging reservations. Order your Oktoberfest tickets and meals ahead of time.

Arrive early, slow down, and stay late. Honor the harvest. Honor King Ludwig and his Queen, and honor your friends and family at an awesome party. These are great ways to celebrate Oktoberfest. Come join us. We look forward to seeing you here!
