Iowa Hosts Three Oktoberfest Events in One Weekend
It’s going to be a very busy weekend for me! Late last month, my friend bought us tickets and booked us a hotel for the Adventureland Oktoberfest in Altoona. Little did we know that the Adventureland Oktoberfest is the same weekend as the Amana one. I’ve been to every Amana Oktoberfest since I moved to Iowa, so I can’t miss one now! That’s why we decided to visit Amana on Friday night, on top of heading to Altoona on Saturday. My body is going to be 98% beer and brats and I couldn’t be happier!
