How was your experience?
I had a great time at Oktoberfest this past Saturday. Weather plays a big factor so check the forecast before booking. The boat arrived late to the pier and it was a pretty big crowd. The ride was pleasant with the captain giving a site seeing tour along the Hudson. There is a bar onboard and also some snacks, etc. The 3 bathrooms were constantly in use and got awful pretty fast with one going out of service during the trip. Other than that, I totally enjoyed the day long excursion. Bear Mtn was fun with beer, food and activities to delight all ages. I will advise you though that the walk from the pier at Bear Mtn up to the festival is quite rocky and steep, not great for strollers or the elderly. Have fun and enjoy your Stiegl & bratwurst ; )
