The Charleston Battery is set to turn Blackbaud Stadium into a Bavarian beer hall. Though Daniel Island is halfway across the world from Germany, Oktoberfest proves that love can cross oceans. That love of course is the love of good beers. While Halloween tries to sugarcoat and dress up its intentions with candy and costumes, Oktoberfest gets straight to the point. It’s all about getting jolly on booze. In addition to good beer, this year’s celebration offers local teams the opportunity to compete in the German Cup, a series of contests including tug-o-war, barrel races, and bratwurst eating competitions. You don’t have to leave the kids at home either. There will be plenty of fun for the whole family like mini-soccer games, a mountain slide, and inflatable jump castles. Caution: Jump castles and beer do not mix. There will also be German dancers and an Oompah band. Parking is free and proceeds will go to benefit the Salvation Army and Live 5 News’ Debi’s Kids. Move over Halloween. It’s time for a real party. —Myles Hutto
