The City of Coral Springs estimates thousands of South Florida residents attended its Oktoberfest Celebration at the Great Lawn of City Hall on October 15.

The event featured Bavarian food and drink, food trucks on-site, and contests for all ages.

Contests included a stein race, stein-holding, yodeling, and the first-ever Coral Springs Weiner Dog Race.

Young attendees enjoyed inflatable activities, lawn games, and a visit from Rapunzel, and The Swinging Bavarians provided traditional music and entertainment for the crowd.

The event, which was free and open to the public, has been held in various formats since 2017.
