Today was a busy day. There were 3-4 Oktoberfest going on all over the city. With that being said I tried to stretch myself as far as I could.
I went to Uptown Beer Garden. As many times as I’ve walked past that location I’ve never stopped in. The days I said I would have stopped in after work I found myself always having to get the kids or something came up. I got to Uptown and at first it wasn’t that many people there. However I found I made some new friends. By the time I left the tables were nice and full and the crowd was already forming! Uptown definitely had amazing decorations!
Oktoberfest is always a great time. From the culture to the food and definitely the beer! All of the staff was very accommodating.

I enjoyed learning about the types of beer. The food was plentiful. From pulled pork sandwiches to Bratwurst and cabbage there was something for everyone! I love how festivals bring out the best in all of us.
I was sad to learn I had missed the entertainment!
I had to also attend my home church’s Youth Choir reunion. So I had to make a mad dash. I know what you’re thinking? How do you go from one extreme to the other? You just go! I spent several hours at Uptown Beer Garden! I was able to run home, change my clothes and then get on the road to Lancaster for the reunion!
I had a great time seeing some of the past members. We all have moved on but it was nice to see how well we were doing. It felt good to be back under my own terms. It felt good to sing the old songs. I’ve had anxiety about ever singing in the church again. It was nice to know that my feelings didn’t have to dominate.
It was a full day to say the least. From getting up early to be with my family to going to Uptown and then the reunion the only thing I kept telling myself is be 100% in each arena. When you are there give each spade your all and then move on to the next. It was a lot of driving and a lot of movement but all fulfilling!
