It's a tradition in these parts to celebrate Oktoberest over Labor Day weekend. The annual event, which takes place at the Cuyahoga County Fairgrounds, features German food, beer and music over the course of the long weekend. At the Sausage Autobahn, you can chow down on pierogis, cabbage, noodles and potato pancakes. A variety of musical acts will perform too. Stone Pony pays tribute to Springsteen tonight while the Spazmatics play hits from the '80s tomorrow night. Some 18 different microbreweries will compete in the Micro-Brew Competition. Admission is $12 for adults; children 12 and under are free. A four-day pass will set you back $25. Today's hours are 4 p.m. to midnight and the event runs through Sunday.
