Friday through Sunday, 1-877-864-0868, gobreck.com/events/breckenridge- oktoberfest

Don your lederhosen, hoist a frosty stein or two and get ready to polka in the streets at this weekend of Bavarian fun - and you don't have to hop a plane to Munich to enjoy it.

The resort town does it up right with delicious German cuisine, steins to take home, Bavarian dancers, sudsy Paulaner Bier, children's activities, a 5K run and enough oompah tuba to last you until next year.

Sorry, the popular Brewmaster's Dinner is sold out.

And for all you leaf peepers: On the two-and-half-hour drive to Breck and back, the fall colors should be prime for viewing and photos.
