I went this first weekend, Oktoberfest, and it was filled with a lot of different costumes! Pick your favorited themed weekend and then your favorite costume and enjoy a get away from reality. When you plan your visit do not forget to include all the exciting shows that are going on throughout the day. The New Market host an event that the first show starts at 9:30 and the last one ends at 6:00. Next is the Globe on a theatre which has all sorts of shows throughout the day. Next is Dove Meadow that starts at 9:30 and the last show is at 4:30, which live music is performed and you will be able to witness to newer (or older) styles of music. There is also the Falconer’s shows that have live birds! The Greek Agora offers different shows from belly dancing, music, acting and even comedy for your entrainment. If you are looking for some entrainment then you will not want to miss the Barbarian Bombshells, which they perform “m” rated shows so this is not for children! There is also a dance school at the Titania’s Bower which will help you improve your rusty dance skills! This event is something you do not want to miss.
