If you’re participating in the race, or just like beer, one way to celebrate is to head to Shirlington for the 16th annual Mid-Atlantic Oktoberfest, hosted by Capital City Brewing Company. The festival is free to attend but offers a $30 beer sampling ticket, which can be bought at the gate.
There will be more than 65 breweries and authentic German food and music to celebrate the German folk festival. The Shirlington Oktoberfest was rescheduled for Sunday, Oct. 11 due to the nor’easter last weekend.
It’s a three-day weekend for Arlington Public Schools students, who have off on Monday due to Columbus Day. Arlington County courts, the Sheriff’s office and the Department of Motor Vehicles will also be closed, but county government offices will be open.
Metro and Metrobus will be operating on Saturday schedules for Columbus Day. ARLnow.com will be operating on a normal reporting schedule for the holiday.
Feel free to discuss the Army Ten-Miler, Shirlington Oktoberfest or any other topic of local interest in the comments.
