Oktoberfest

Street Toys Car Show at Alpine Village Oktoberfest

Sunday afternoon I headed over to Alpine Village in Torrance for the Street Toys Back to School Car Show which was held in conjunction with Alpine Village’s Oktoberfest. Sunday is family day at Oktoberfest so there were lots of families wandering around admiring the artwork on the show entries.

From my understanding, Street Toys is governing body as it were for the local car clubs; so this event included many different car clubs covering a wide spectrum of car styles with trophies for every class. They had 2-door cars, 4-door cars, mini-trucks, full sized trucks, imports, classics, motorcycles and anything else you can think of. The car show was a fundraiser to help provide back to school necessities for underprivileged students throughout the Los Angeles Unified School District. Street Toys and all the participants should be congratulated for holding a successful event for a good cause.

Alpine Village is located at 833 W. Torrance Boulevard in Torrance. Their 46th Annual Oktoberfest runs every weekend through October with Friday and Saturday evenings being adults (21+) only and Sunday afternoons being open to all.

Photos from Oktoberfest at Alpine Village, Torrance

These photos are from Friday night at Oktoberfest at Alpine Village in Torrance. After we held a Business & Beer meeting at the Alpine Inn at Alpine Village, the General Manager invited us back to attend Oktoberfest. Since it was Day Two of LA Beer Week, we decided to take him up on his generous offer last night. If you have never attended Oktoberfest and you enjoy good beer, oompa bands and the Chicken Dance I suggest you head over to Alpine Village to check out their 45th Annual Oktoberfest. It is the biggest and longest running Oktoberfest this side of the Mississippi River. Oktoberfest runs on the weekends through October 27, with Friday and Saturday nights being for adults and Sundays for families.

As you can see from the photos it is a lot of fun. We had about 15 people in our group, with some that had never been before and some that had not been in 4-5 years (it has been more than 20 for me) and everyone had a blast. In addition to their customary German biers there are several local craft brews available as well; so if you enjoy beer there will be one there you will like. Prost! Continue reading
