Fremont is Seattle’s quirkiest neighborhood. Nestled along the north side of the Lake Washington Ship Canal, the heart of Fremont is a mix of small homes converted to coffee shops and quiet campuses for large companies such as Adobe and Google. While exploring the proudly self-titled “center of the universe,” you might encounter an 18′ troll, a surprisingly strong scent of chocolate, a neon Rapunzel, and signs telling you to “set your watch forward five minutes,” “set your watch back five minutes,” and to simply, “throw your watch away.” (Hang on to your watch, you’ll need it for the event!)
So what could be more fun that a Street Scramble event in Fremont? To do it during Fremont Oktoberfest! Fremont’s Oktoberfest is hailed as one of the top ten places in the world to celebrate the Bavarian Festival. Could it be because of the German “oompah” bands, the chainsaw pumpkin carving contest, the largest beer garden in the northwest, the kid-friendly activities (Sunday is specially designed to be a fun day for families)? Come decide for yourself.
Start the morning with an adventure, then tell your tales over a German-style local microbrew or a soft pretzel!
