Labor Day Oktoberfest
in Berea is about more than just sitting around and drinking lots of German beer. Its also about eating traditional food and dancing to ethnic tunes . . . while drinking lots of German beer. I want this to be a multicultural event to reflect the diversity of Cleveland, says organizer Bob Hass. In addition to performances by Hank Heller, the Fred Ziwich International Sound Machine, and the Spazmatics, look for a German-car show, cornhole tournies, and a 5K run. Plus, wiener-dog races!
