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 will pay tribute to Springsteen, E5C4P3 will perform the music of Journey and the Spazmatics will deliver an '80s tribute. Several 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 Monday. (Niesel) clevelandoktoberfest.com.
