Fall in the Midlands may or may not bring much cooler weather, but another eagerly anticipated visitor is already on the calendar: Blythewood’s popular Oktoberfest.

The town’s fourth annual celebration of fall and all things German is set for Friday, Sept. 30 and Saturday, Oct. 1 at Doko Meadows Park at 100 Alvina Hagood Circle, just off Langford Road.

The event attracts thousands of attendees for a day and a half of biergartens, food trucks, live traditional German and local musical acts, vendors, traditional German dress and yodeling contests, and a not-so-German cow patty bingo game with cash prizes. Other competitions will include a stein race, 5K run/walk, and contests for log-sawing, keg-rolling and keg tossing.
