It may not be Munich, but Saline’s Oktoberfest doesn’t skimp on German beer festivities. Catch the ceremonial keg tapping, drink Bock in the beer garden, eat some schnitzel and take a whack at Hammerschlagen (also known as stump)—a traditional betting/drinking game that measures precision and strength with a hammer and nail.

Friday, September 26 from 6-11pm and Saturday, September 27 from 10am-11pm. Downtown Saline. salinemainstreet.org/oktoberfest
