"It's a good excuse to have beer in the morning," Prundale resident Andy O'Brien said when asked what was the best part of the Peninsula Oktoberfest.
O'Brien, together with his wife, drove about an hour from Prundale and headed to Courthouse Square on Saturday to join in the 3rd Annual Oktoberfest. The couple said they hadn't missed a year yet.
Aside from good beer from various local breweries, the Peninsula Oktoberfest also featured family-friendly German and Bavarian food, music, and dancing.
Redwood City Mayor Alicia Aguirre did the honors of commencing the festivities by performing the traditional tapping of the first Oktoberfest beer barrel.
