Celebrate Oktoberfest By Paintin’ and Sippin’
Babe's at Harbor Point, since September 19th, has been celebrating Oktoberfest. It's a festival typically held in Germany, that is held over a two week period and ends on the first Sunday in October. The festival originated in celebration of the marriage of the crown prince of Bavaria. It has grown into the largest annual celebration in the world, drawing in millions of people every year.
Babe's at Harbor Point has teamed up with bb designs for an Oktoberfest themed paint and sip this Saturday, September 26th. Taking place on the patio at Babe's, you'll be able to sip on a few drinks, eat some food, and paint a beautiful image of a sunflower and a pumpkin. The paint and sip will be a socially distant event.
The Oktoberfest paint and sip is $45, and comes with all needed supplies: paint, brushes, your first drink to sip on, and an appetizer.
It's panning out to be a beautiful weekend, so why not spend some time out on the patio at Babe's and paint to your hearts content?
You can register for the event, here.
Here's some facts about Oktoberfest that you probably didn't know, according to EDreams.com:
- The vent used to be for only one week of October. 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.
- Oktoberfest is, above all, a celebration of Bavarian traditions, so the only beer you’ll find during the festival is brewed within the city limits of Munich. Only beers that fit this criteria are considered Oktoberfest Beers.
- You can’t stop beer pouring! In 200 years, Oktoberfest has only been cancelled 24 times. The causes were mostly due to the war and cholera epidemics (like coronavirus.)
- Since 1950, the festival has only started after the official gun salute and the mayor shouting O’ zapft is! (“It’s tapped!”) and offering the first mug to the Minister-President of the State of Bavaria. Only after that, the festival can start.
