Oktoberfest at Glenwood Caverns on Saturday

Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park is hosting a mountain-top German fall festival Saturday.

Starting at 10 a.m., the fourth annual Oktoberfest features music, contests, refreshments and entertainment for the whole family throughout the day.

“The Oktoberfest continues to be one of our favorite traditions,” said Steve Beckley, owner of Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park with his wife Jeanne, in a press statement. “We’ve added some new contests and activities for kids this year, so it should be a lot of fun for guests of all ages.”

In addition to cave tours and thrill rides, visitors can enjoy traditional German music, food and beer specials and pie- and bratwurst-eating contests. Kids can also bob for apples and enter the rubber-band-gun-shooting and bubble-blowing contests. Skippy the Clown will entertain kids with balloon animals and more. Oktoberfest food and drink highlights include bratwurst, sauerkraut, German potato salad, apple cider and plenty of beer.

Round-trip passes for the Iron Mountain Tramway are $10 for adults, $9 for seniors 65 and older and $7 for ages 3-12. Annual pass holders may ride the tramway and enjoy cave tours for free for a full year and can enjoy discounts at Exclamation Point Restaurant, the gift shop and on ride tokens. Annual passes cost $50 for individuals and $100 for families.
