Oktoberfest block party at Brauhaus Schmitz

Of course this South Street German beer hall hosts the best Oktoberfest celebration in the city. It's been going on all week and it culminates with a huge, day-long block party. Expect tons of beer and wursts, plus face painting, live oompah music and a Liter Lift competition (the winner earns free beer for a year). Food and drink is pay as you go.

Where: Brauhaus Schmitz at 700 block of South Street

When: September 19, 2015 from 12:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

How much: Pay as you go
