Oktoberfest. At this family-friendly Bavarian bash with a Western twist, test out your
yodeling skills during YoColorado’s yodeling contest with international yodeling
champion Vic Anderson, show off your stein-holding strength, earn bragging rights for
the best Wild West mustache or dress up in a Germany-meets-Wild West costumes
