Hey, Blue Water Area! Get ready for the upcoming Oktoberfest at the McMorran Plaza. You may be asking yourself, “What is Oktoberfest exactly?” Well, it’s a celebration/festival with its origin in Munich, Germany.
On October 12th, 1810, Oktoberfest started as a celebration of the marriage of King Louis I. Today it is a huge two-week celebration with parades, games, music, and more. What it is most famously known for is the beer drinking. It is said that approximately 2 million gallons are consumed each year!
The Oktoberfest on the McMorran Plaza will be the first at the newly upgraded Plaza located in Downtown Port Huron. Beginning Saturday, October 15, at 1 PM, the event will feature a full day of games, competitions, food, and of course, beer!
