Yet one autumn holiday that I haven’t yet experienced is that infamously rowdy German 16-day festival where we can all indulge in merrymaking, beer drinking and carefree games: Oktoberfest.
Time waits for no one, so this year, I’m heading to my very first Oktoberfest gathering at the Fairplex in Pomona (I’ll have to wait to get to the real "die Wiesn" Oktoberfest in Munich until a little later, but hey, you gotta start somewhere, right?).
Of course, it’s always more fun when you can share new experiences with someone, so I’m giving away a pair of FREE tickets and complimentary parking passes (total value $20) to this Oktoberfest celebration at the Fairplex…
No, you most certainly don’t have to hang out with me to get the tickets, but you do have to answer the following question:
What’s your favorite fall merriment pastime and why?
The person with the BEST merriment (picked by yours truly) wins the tickets!
Don’t forget to include your first name and your location. All answers can be submitted in the comment box below, to email@example.com or tweeted to @WilsonsGuide on Twitter.
Contest goes until Thursday, October 18th, 11:59pm PST. Winner will be announced on the #WilsonsGuide blog on Friday, October 19th.
A big THANKS to Heather from the FAIRPLEX for donating the tickets!!
