Once a year, Whiteface dusts off its lederhosen, fires up the oompah band and enjoys a tall mug of German beer. Oktoberfest is a weekend-long celebration of Bavarian culture, with authentic music, dancing, food and beer. But it's not just about eating and drinking (not that there's anything wrong with that). You'll find complimentary rides for kids and adults, craft vendors and discounted trips on the Cloudsplitter Gondola to the summit of Little Whiteface. The views from up there will make it pretty clear why Fall in the Adirondacks is something worth celebrating.
