After the race, plan to stick around for all you can eat pancakes from Flipin Flapjacks', free beer from Living the Dream Brewery and a fun post race party! Come back later in the afternoon to get your polka on, enjoy German food and other HRCA Oktoberfest activities at the HRCA Oktoberfest event.
Did You Know? It’s Called October But Starts in September- Munich Germany’s Oktoberfest
The name “Oktober” is misleading because most of the festival happens in September… The event started in 1810 and at that time it took place during one week of October, but along the years it was extended and the starting date was changed to September because the weather is warmer and more pleasing, therefore it’s easier to attract more visitors to stay even longer and enjoy the beer (and festival) throughout the night.
