Cape Coral Oktoberfest returns after COVID-19 canceled last year
Oktoberfest is back in Cape Coral after COVID-19 canceled last year’s festivities.
The crowds are more than ready to take advantage. And sanitation measures are in place to try to keep everyone safe.
“We have more and more Plexiglas covers in various places. But essentially, this will be the Oktoberfest that everyone remembers in 2019, ”said Stephen Bauer, president of the German American Social Club.
Because parking is still tight, this year rideshare services like Lyft and Uber are offering incentives.
A quick scan of a QR code makes it easy to get to Oktoberfest.
Make sure you keep your carpooling receipt, it can save you money.
Satellite parking is available and shuttles will run continuously from 6 p.m. to midnight. On Saturdays, overflow parking will be available.
“If we need overflow parking, we’ll have shuttles right off Pine Island Road,” Bauer said.
The Cape Coral Police Department reminds people to stay safe if they plan to attend the Oktoberfest event.
Oktoberfest will be held October 22-24 and October 29-31 at 2101 SW Pine Island Rd. The event is hosted by the German American Social Club.
The event has free parking, but the organizers are offering a $ 2 reduction on admission and a $ 5 Uber credit for those who choose to use a rideshare service. To get the discount, all you need to do is show your race receipt at the entrance.
Cape Coral Police are encouraging people to take the discount to keep everyone safe and to help keep traffic moving.
