Ocktoberfest to showcase “Falling Leaves”

On October 12th and 13th, Celebration Town Center transforms before your very eyes as the falling leaves of the season drop on Market Street in the all new Fall Festival known as Ocktoberfest. Listen for the rustling of leaves, relax by the lakeside and rock your troubles away, or enjoy the live music with family and friends in this one-of-a-kind themed extravaganza.
On Friday October 12th Ocktoberfest will be celebrated in the old-world German traditional featuring the sounds of Dan Witucki & Heimatland Musikanten. Come join in on the interactive live show featuring everything from yodeling to crowd sing-a-long fun.

Come back on October 13th as Celebration Town Center takes on a “Rocktoberfest” feel with the high energy classic rock of legendary rock band Orleans (Still the One, Dance with Me, Dancin in the Moonlight, Love Takes Time) and John Cafferty with “Tunes” (The Beaver Brown Band- On the Dark Side, Living in the C-I-T-Y, Tender Years).

Hop on a hayride, dance to the terrific live music, paint a pumpkin, or just stroll and enjoy the crisp fall air and enjoy the great savings at the lakeside promenade.

Leaves fall daily at 6:00, 7:00, 8:00, and 9:00 PM.
Parking and Admission are FREE!!!

There is something for everyone at this one of a kind Fall Festival presented by Lexin and sponsored in-art by Schenck, Celebration Hotel, Axis Magazine and Warsteiner The Premium German Beer.
Come early, Stay Late, and have fun at Celebration’s 1st Annual Ocktoberfest!!!!

What’s behind the name: Ocktoberfest?
No, you are not seeing things, and no, surprisingly that’s not a typo either. The untraditional spelling of Ocktoberfest was, in fact, a throwback to the oldest “Oktoberfest” on record. The original Munich, Germany Ocktoberfest dates back 175 years. The festivities began on October 12, 1810 (the same day Celebration, FL introduces its very 1st Ocktoberfest Celebration). In the following years, the celebrations were repeated and, later, the festival was prolonged and moved forward into September.

By moving the festivities up, it allowed for better weather conditions. Because the September nights were warmer, the visitors were able to enjoy the gardens outside the tents and the stroll over “die Wiesen” or the fields much longer without feeling chilly. Historically, the last Ocktoberfest weekend was in October and this tradition continues into present times, with most modern day festivals referred to as “Octoberfest” or “Oktoberfest”.

Come out and enjoy this fun, family-friendly Ocktoberfest celebration!
