Children’s Activities

The Kinderecke or Children’s Corner is near the large oak trees.  From opening to sunset (around 6pm) each day, there will be crafts and games.  Games will include Tic Tac Toe, Maze, Corn hole and Pipe Ball.  Some activities that are planned are mug decorating, cookie decorating, face painting and even a pretzel demo.  And new this year: a children’s costume contest and parade on October 5.

Children must be accompanied by an adult and may not be left unattended.

Check the event schedule for events that might be fun for children such as the Schnauzer Parade on Saturday October 12, the Dachshund Dash on Saturday, October 19 and other fun performances such as the 610-Stompers or the Schnitzelbank song.

The Coca Cola booth sells drinks such as water, sodas and Powerade.  The Imbiss (snack) booth has chicken nuggets and fries for those who aren’t ready for brats or schnitzel.
