Thanks so much. My husband has never been to an Octoberfest in the St Louis area. We used to go to a small one in Sarasota. At least it was authentic, in the back "yard" of a German deli. They had big tents outside and served their brats and wurst and had a German band playing.

I was at the Hofbrau House in Munich, but it wasn't in October. My favorite memory is of an older German gentleman who had his little dachshund with him. He poured out a little beer in a saucer for the pup, who lapped it up and promptly fell asleep.

You can take the AMTRAK train from Kirkwood to Hermann. It's really fun to do that, but watch out for all the social imbibers who start early! They can get loud and silly. If you drive, I am not sure where you'd park, but I don't think parking would be a problem.

You can walk along the main street of Hermann which is level. Go to the winery there and not the one up that huge hill.

The leaves here are supposed to change in early November, which is much later than usual. I'm not sure about the Octoberfest schedule in Hermann, but it is certainly fun to do. I always enjoy it!

I was thinking of waiting til October and going to Herman, maybe closer to when the leaves are changing. Has anyone been there? How's the parking? I've been using a cane lately because of back problems, and hoping to go somewhere where don't have to park too far.

Maybe tomorrow night? Urban Chestnut is also celebrating Octoberfest this weekend. It would be fun. St. Charles is closer to us.
