BETHLEHEM, Pa. - A big weekend with lots of fun is on tap in Bethlehem.
Oktoberfest kicked off at Steelstacks Friday night with a flurry of activity.
But things really start hopping Saturday and Sunday with a barrel rolling competition, stein races and even dachshund dashes.
There's a new event this year. It's called a boot pour. Folks will try to pour beer into a boot without spilling anything.
"We have a lot of activities for families," said ArtsQuest's Mark Demko. "We have rides. We have the fun and games people can take part in. Quoits, bean bag tosses. It really appeals to people of all ages."
Organizers expect about 25,000 people for this year's Oktoberfest.
It runs through the rest of this weekend and resumes next weekend.
